Commissioner , Hakeem Odumosu, has declared that no protest will be allowed to hold at the Lekki Tollgate on , February 13.

On Tuesday, February 9, some Nigerians using the hashtag #OccupyLekkiTollgate announced plans to stage fresh protests over plans to reopen the tollgate.

The protest was in response to the Judicial Panel Inquiry, which last gave to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to take over the tollgates that have been shut since October 2020 after the shooting incident that reportedly left some EndSARS and injured.

While the #OccupyLekkiTollgate proponents were making plans for protests, another group using the hashtag #DefendLagos announced plans to hold a counter-protest at the same Lekki tollgate.

Odumosu told reporters neither the two groups would be allowed to hold any protest come , February 13.

“Allowing both groups to carry out planned protests will be counter-productive. No protest in any guise will be allowed to take place on Saturday 13th February 2021,”he declared.
