#OccupyLekkiTollGate Trends on Twitter as Lagos EndSARS Panel Decides to Reopen Tollgate

Social media users have expressed their opposition to the reopening of the Lekki Tollgate as decided by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses.

The panel had on Saturday granted the prayers of the Lekki Concession Company to reopen the toll plaza. The decision had generated lots of reactions since Saturday, with quite a lot of social media users expressing dissatisfaction with the panel’s decision.

As of Monday morning, Twitter users have been calling for a protest at the Lekki tollgate on Saturday, 13th February 2021. Some of those calling for the protest said the panel’s decision smacks of injustice.

The tollgate has been closed following the shooting and killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers and police.
