The police have arrested 10 protesters at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos.
Some activists have been calling for demonstrations against the decision of the Lagos judicial panel investigating police brutality to grant the Lekki Concession Company permission to resume business at the tollgate.
The tollgate was shut after soldiers shot at #EndSARS protesters who converged there on October 20, 2020.
On Friday, a phalanx of police officers was stationed at the tollgate to preclude the convergence of protesters.
Some youths who came around the area were picked up by the police.
But some of them claimed they were not protesters.

Many of the people say they don’t know why they are being arrested. Some say they are passersby. None of the police can tell us why they are being arrested and what the grounds are for arrest. #Lekkitollgate pic.twitter.com/CXgGuCv3bH
