Police Disperse Lekki Tollgate Protesters With Tear Gas



Police Disperse Lekki Tollgate Protesters With Tear Gas

The memorial march for the End of Sars protest predictably ended in a chaotic fashion after police fired teargas at the Lekki tollgate to disperse protesters.

This led to some of the protesters running in all directions for their lives. The youths had converged on the Lekki tollgate to mark the first anniversary of #EndSARS in the country.

Earlier, operatives of the Lagos State Police Command arrested two protesters. One of those arrested claimed to be a journalist while the other was seen carrying a placard.

About 30 police trucks and armed personnel are currently at the tollgate to enforce a ban on protests issued by the police command.

The #EndSARS protests which were held in October 2020 were against the activities of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit of the Nigeria Police Force which was accused of police brutality.
