Lekki tollgate: Breakdown of law won’t be tolerated, police warn against protest

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has warned against protest over the reopening of the Lekki toll plaza reopening by the Lekki Concession Company Limited.

He gave the warning in a statement on Thursday titled, ‘Lekki tollgate protest: Breakdown of law and order will not be tolerated – CP Alabi’, by the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin.

The Lagos police boss assured Lagosians that the command has put necessary measures in place to ensure the safety of lives and property, the free flow of traffic.

The statement read, “This assurance has become imperative following news making the rounds that some Nigerians are planning to protest at the Lekki Toll-gate, an action capable of grounding commercial activities and obstructing the free flow of traffic.

“While the Command is not averse to the peoples’ right to freedom of assembly and association; and expression, the Command will equally live up to its mandate of ensuring that no person or group of persons is allowed to infringe on the fundamental human rights of others, especially the rights to freedom of movement and right to dignity of human persons.

“CP Alabi, therefore, warns all intending protesters that anyone found infringing on the rights of other Nigerians will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

“Meanwhile, CP Alabi once again enjoins all peace-loving Lagosians to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, reiterating that adequate security assets have been strategically deployed to ensure their safety and security.”
