Video/Photo: Police In Show Of Force At #Lekkitollgate Against #OccupyLekkiTollGate Protest



Men of the Lagos State Police Command have put on a show of force at the Lekki toll gate ahead of #occupylekkitollgate scheduled on Saturday, February 13, 2021.

The organisers of the protest planned for Saturday are opposing the decision which allowed the Lekki Concession Company to take back control of the Lekki toll gate where #EndSARS protesters are alleged to have been shot on October 20, 2020by men of the Nigerian Army.


The police personnel who were led by the head of the Rapid Response Squad, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi, also visited Ikoyi, Jakande Roundabout and other areas in Eti-Osa local government of the state.

Egbeyemi also led his men to Obalende which yesterday witnessed unrest as a result of a clash between members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in the state.


The RRS shared pictures from the exercise on micro-blogging site, Twitter, explaining that it was done to deter crime as well as boost the morale of the officers in the areas.

The photos were captioned: “CSP Yinka Egbeyemi is presently leading a team of police officers on a show of force to Lekki Toll Gate (Admiralty Plaza) Obalende, Ikoyi, Jakande Roundabout, and other areas in Eti Osa as part of efforts to deter crime as well as boost the morale of his officers in the areas.”



The decision was made last Saturday by the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Lekki Toll Gate Incident.
