Social media users and activists have expressed their anger and opposition to the reopening of the Lekki Tollgate as decided by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses.
The panel had on Saturday granted the prayers of the Lekki Concession Company to reopen the toll plaza. The decision had generated lots of reactions since Saturday, with quite a lot of social media users expressing dissatisfaction with the panel’s decision to reopen the toll gates.
As of Monday morning, Twitter users have been calling for a protest at the Lekki tollgate on Saturday, 13th February 2021. Some of those calling for the protest said the panel’s decision smacks of injustice.
@RYemoja said: “Those that destroy our young protesters at Lekki can’t ever appear before the panel because of conscience, history will never forget the lawless military.”
@Dannyrockie said: “We won’t surrender to evil. We won’t be muted against our rights. We won’t become cowards overnight in doing the right thing. No justice scales. No peace for the enemies. No justice, no reopening.”
@UncleShinelz tweeted saying: “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty. Our oppressors are not slowing down anytime soon, we must slow or calm down neither! #RevolutionNow #EndSARS #Lekkitollgate.”
@JGagariga said: “That toll gate should never be open, it’s out of the desperation to reopen the toll gate the soldiers were called in to carry out #LekkiMassacre, there’s no excuse whatsoever that the toll should come back, how many victims of #LekkiMassacre have gotten justice? #EndSARS.”
