Photos From Lekki Toll Gate Protest Against Price Hike In Lagos State

Before the protest even started, it was reported that Nigeria Police Officers were seen heavily armed on those areas. Well, regardless of that, some aggrieved residents of Lekki and Ajah in Lagos took to the streets Friday to protest the recent hike in toll charges at the Lekki-Epe Expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge toll gates.

The protest, which was convened under the banner of Eti-Osa Development Forum, started around 9 am with the protesters gathering at the Lekki Penninsula Scheme 1 gate.

The protesters demanded that the Lagos State Government stop the operation of the Lekki Concession Company, operators of the tolls and show the financial statements of the company since the concession was bought by the state government.

These are pictures from the protest held earlier in the day...
