Soldiers, Policemen Tight Security At Lekki Tollgate 24 Hours To #EndSARS Plan Season Two Protest

Share This

Barely 24 hours to the set date for the proposed #OccupyTollgate protest, also called #EndSARS Season 2, security forces in their numbers, have cordoned off the Lekki Tollgate axis.



INFORMATION CARRIER had earlier reported that some Nigerian youths in their reaction to the recommendation by the Lagos Panel of Inquiry to reopen the Tollgate, had vowed to occupy the venue with #OccupyLekkiTollgate trending ahead of the match scheduled for February 13.

Similarly, the Federal Government, Lagos State Government and Police have warned against any kind of protest, threatening to crush any protester found at the venue.

To make good their warnings, men of the Nigerian army, police, and other security outfit occupied the proposed protest grounds Friday evening.

A source who visited the area narrated that the security forces in the area was so watertight to the extent that loitering or short stopovers are not allowed.

“The security operatives questioned me for stopping over briefly,” our sources stated.
 
Asked if they will be on the ground tomorrow and if the protest would hold, one of the officers said: “We are waiting for them.”

The first #EndSARS protest reached a climax on October 20, 2020, when men of the Nigerian army clashed with protesters at the Lekki Tollgate, resulting in shootings, injuries, and some casualties.
