Two persons have been arrested during a car procession ongoing at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos State.

The police arrested the two men on Wednesday morning amid the parade organised to mark the one-year anniversary of the protests.

“I did not do anything,” said one of the young men before his arrest. “They beat me, they collected my phone, they took my money; the police have not learnt their lessons.”

Shortly after they were arrested, both men were taken into a waiting truck of the Task Force, after which the vehicle zoomed off.

While the police are stationed at the tollgate for security purposes, officials of the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps (LNSC) are maintaining a free flow of traffic.

One of the protesters was arrested while talking to reporters who were at the tollgate to cover the procession. Before this, there was an altercation between some members of the press and the security officials.
