EndSARS protests resume at Lekki Tollgate as Mr Macaroni arrested, see reactions
The once-abandoned protests to end the operations of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force has resumed on Saturday, February 13th.
The resumption of the EndSARS protests come after the Lagos State government announced that the Lekki Tollgate is set to resume for business.
Nigerian youths are not happy with the decision and have decided to protest for justice given that people were killed at the Tollgate protests in October.
At the protests today, popular Nigerian comedian Mr. Macaroni has been arrested by the Police who are heavily concentrated at the Lekki Tollgate and put him in the Black Maria.

So the armed police and LCC staff at #LekkiTollGate are arresting anyone on sight whether you are a protester or not, straight into a Black Maria and moved to an unknown location. Whatever happened to the fundamental right of peaceful gathering?

What is the use of having laws if the Police can simply choose to ignore that “peaceful protests are a constitutional right”, and instead beat up protesters, respond with force and even take protesters away in a Black Maria. Disgraceful and illegal acts #Lekkitollgate #EndSARS
