#EndSARS; Another protest loom as #occupylekkitollgate trends on social media

Following the approval to reopen the lekki toll gate by the Judicial Panel of Inquiry, established by the Lagos State government to investigate the October 2020 Lekki shooting incident, many Nigerians have expressed their anger over the decision and for that, have taken to twitter to protest that the Soldiers who shot and injured innocent people must be prosecuted according to the law before the toll gate can be reopened.

CRIMECHANNELS learnt that the #OccupyLekkiTollGate, which is another wave of protest against injustice and government’s silence over the Lekki shootings is scheduled to kick off on 13th February 2021, according to Twitter sources.

It could be recalled that on Saturday, the panel investigating the shooting incident and other Police brutality related incident returned the control of the tollgate to the Lekki Concession Company, the operators.

Speaking against the reopening of Lekki tollgate where several Nigerians were injured and allegedly killed by security operatives, human right activist, Omoyele Sowore, took to Twitter and wrote;


@YeleSowore: No to the reopening #Lekkitollgate, the perpetrators of #LekkiMassacre must be brought to book. @jidesanwoolu #Buratai must be brought before @IntlCrimCourt #RevolutionNow #Buharimustgo

Some users of the micro blogging app also called for justice for those who were killed during the endsars protest. Below are some Tweets:

@ayemojubar : OCCUPY LAGOS LEKKI TOLL-GATE!
Saturday: 13th Feb, 7AM.

“If there is no justice for the people, let there be no peace for the government” – Emiliano Zapata.#RevolutionNow #EndSARS #OccupyLekkiTollGate

@Kaylechi_: Re-opening of Lekki Toll Gate is the govt saying “forget it, that one has passed”. But what they don’t know is that youths are determined to get justice.

Lekki Toll Gate must remain closed until investigations are concluded and justice is served. #OccupyLekkiTollGate.
