‘We therefore strongly warn those who are planning to re-occupy Lekki Toll Gate on Saturday to desist’ – Lai Mohammed
Lai Mohammed, Information Minister has warned those planning the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest at Lekki Toll Gate to shelve their plans as violent protests will not be tolerated, stating that it could turn violent because of “hoodlums”.
“We therefore strongly warn those who are planning to re-occupy Lekki Toll Gate on Saturday to desist,” Mohammed told a news conference on Thursday in the capital Abuja.
“Never Again will the Fed. Govt. Allow the Kind of Violence that Has Been Perpetuated Across the Country Under the Guise of Endsars.”
“Let me be clear, while peaceful protests are constitutional rights of Nigerians, violent protests are not,”he said.
The fresh protest was planned by concerned Nigerians disappointed in the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel for ruling in favour of Lekki Concession Company, for the Lekki tollgate to be reopened.
