Nigerians have been expressing their anger over the ruling of the Lagos State Judicial Panel allowing Lekki Concession Company to regain possession and reopen the Lekki tollgate.
The decision of the panel has made Nigerians resolve to stage another protest.
The tollgate has been closed following the shooting and killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers and police.
The Lagos panel was divided as five of the nine members of the panel led by Justice Doris Okuwobi (rtd), voted in support of the reopening of the tollgate at the last sitting on Saturday.
Irritated by the decision of the panel, Nigerians have planned a protest at the tollgate stating 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 7am.
It is the top trending topic and the Nigerian Twitter today with the hashtag #OccupyLekkiTollGate.
Below are some tweets on the planned protest:
OCCUPY LAGOS LEKKI TOLL-GATE!
Saturday: 13th Feb, 7AM.

Every time you pass Lekki toll gate, you will hear the blood of the innocent crying for justice.

In Yoruba, if a calabash used for fetching water breaks, that's the end of the calabash activity.. Same is applicable to Lekki Toll Gate.. I go against the reopening of Lekki Toll Gate..
