Rival groups threaten protests over Lekki Toll Gate

 The Lagos State Judicial Panel’s decision permitting the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to repossess the Lekki Toll Gate caused a social media storm on Tuesday with two groups threatening counter-protests at the plaza.

Opponents of the panel’s decision, mainly youths, expressed their outrage on Twitter with the hashtag #OccupyLekkiTollGate.

They resolved to stage another protest at the tollgate to ensure that the tollgate remains shut until justice is served to the victims of the Lekki shooting.

The protest has been fixed for Saturday, February 13, 2021, from 7 am.

Their outrage was matched by that expressed by proponents of a counter social media campaign with the hashtag #DefendLagos and #DemNoBornDemPapaWell.

The promoters lamented that Lagos State witnessed massive destruction of public and private properties during the #EndSARS protests, warning that further protest that will lead to destruction will not be tolerated.
