#OccupyLekkiTollgate trends as Nigerians plan protest over the reopening of Lekki tollgate
This is coming after the Justice Doris Okwuobi-led Judicial panel on Saturday in Lagos state, granted permission to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to take over the Lekki tollgates that have been shut down since the October 20 gunshot incident.
The decision came as a shock to many Nigerians who wondered why the tollgate should be reopened as the hearing of the October 20 “Lekki massacre” is still ongoing.
DJ Switch and singer, Peter Okoye are some of the Nigerian celebrities who have openly kicked against the reopening of the tollgate.
Nigerians on Monday, February 8, using the hashtag #OccupyLekkiTollgate have expressed their readiness to stage another protest if the Lekki tollgate should be reopened on February 13 while victims of the Lekki shooting of October 20, 2020 are yet to get justice.
