Lagos police brutalise Lekki toll gate protesters


This protester was left unconscious


Officers of the Lagos State Police Command today brutalised defenceless citizens protesting the introduction of a toll gate along the Lekki expressway in Lagos. Eyewitnesses say the police threw caution to the wind as they tear-gassed, pushed, shoved, beat protesters, leaving some of them unconscious.

Some protesters, we are told, were arrested and taken to an unknown destination. Fully armed officers were deployed to the area quel the protest which was peaceful until the police moved in.

Please if you witnessed the protest, kindly send us reports, photos and videos.

    The police force is not a force to be reckoned with. The force is worse than the criminals they are supposed to deliver us from…. I was also harrassed by the DPO of Denton Police Station at Ebute metta, simply because I spoke English.
