Hours after some youths took to Twitter to call for a protest against the reopening of the Lekki tollgate, what appears to be a counter rally has been launched under the hashtag, #DefendLagos.
But on February 6, five of the nine-member panel had voted to return the control of the tollgate to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), stating that a forensic analysis on the venue of the shooting had been carried out, and there was no need to keep the place closed to operations.
The panel’s decision had generated reactions on social media, with many criticising the move.
However, on Monday evening, posters of a counter rally hit social media platforms, with users urging Lagosians to “protect what the destroyers left behind”.
Both rallies are scheduled to take place on February 13, 2021.
