The Lagos State Police Command Monday poohpoohed reports of renewed protests at the Lekki tollgate.

GWG sources at the tollgate also affirmed that there was no protest as at late afternoon contrary to the videos that went round earlier in the day on twitter.

Affirming that there was no protest in a statement issued by Lagos police spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police said the videos circulated were from the earlier protest that ended on October 20.

In the statement titled ‘No Protest, Gathering In Lagos State’, the police said:

“The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video of a protest at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos State, purported to have been staged today 7th December, 2020.

“The Command wishes to debunk the fake video that has been circulated to create tension and destabilise security network in the state. The video was one of the viral videos released during the recent violent Endsars protest before the Lekki Tollgate plaza was set ablaze by the violent protesters on 21st October, 2020.

“The command, therefore, urges the general public to regard the video as baseless and mischievous. The command also wishes to appeal to the general public to remain calm and go about their lawful businesses as the police is prepared to deal decisively, within the ambit of the law, with any act of lawlessness that could lead to breakdown of law and order in the state.”
