Occupy Lekki Toll Gate is a yet-to-be-held movement that is already on the lips of many. In less than two days to the proposed protest, the protesters have been issued warnings from various corners, and this is the latest coming from a respected individual.
The memories from the initial #EndSARS protests and the aftermath are still fresh in the memories of those involved both directly and indirectly. The protesters say they need answers to pressing questions, others fear that things could go South, recreating similar situations to the destruction that took place during those long, hard weeks.
The Police and even the Lagos State government have all blown hot, sending stern warnings out to the intending protesters who simply do not want the toll gate to be reopened, against the plan of the government who claim loss of millions of naira due to non-payment of tickets.
APC Chieftain fires warning at Occupy Lekki Toll Gate protesters
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain of the Lagos State Chapter, Joe Igbokwe has sent a very strong warning to all Nigerians who intend to show up at the Lekki Toll Gate on 13th February.
Igbokwe was categorical in his statements, saying that the actions of any protesters will carry serious consequences this time around.
Some people have decided to view this as a threat to the intentions of peaceful protesters. Whatever it might be, it remains to be seen what the outcome of the intended protests will be.
