Police Brutality : Nigerian youths fixed date to resume protest at Lekki toll gate again
Nigerian youths are set to return to Lekki Toll Gate to protest against police brutality again following vote by some members of the Lagos State judicial panel of inquiry that toll collection from vehicles should return to the toll gate.
Following the announcement that Lekki toll gate will now be opened, youths in the country are regrouping and have fixed February 13th, 2021 as the day to occupy Lekki toll gate in a peaceful protest again.
Lekki toll gate was one of the major venues of the End SARS protests which lasted for 12 days last month in Nigeria. Protesters were shot at, scores reportedly killed by military personnel at the Lekki protest venue before the protest was stopped.
The protest by youths across the country over police brutality led to the dissolution of the defunct Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, unit of the Nigerian police and the birth of Special Weapons and Tactics unit, SWAT.
