#OccupyLekkiTollGate: Police stop Protesters from Congregating

The Nigeria Police Force has reportedly stopped intending protesters from congregating at the toll gates in Lekki, Lagos.

Residents of Lagos State had on Thursday announced plans to stage a protest over the increase of toll fares by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).

The protest, termed #OccupyLekkiTollGate, was to begin 7 AM on Friday, and last throughout the day.

Commuters on Friday morning had however reported the absence of protesters, and not until around 10 AM did signs of an impending protest begin to surface.

Social media users have however shared photos and videos of the Nigeria Police Force stopping protesters from making their way to the toll gates.

See the photos and videos below:
