Strong warnings have been given to youths, who planned to protest at Lekki toll gate, Lagos on Saturday.
The warnings were issued by the Federal Government and the police on Thursday.
Despite the warnings, the young Nigerians, under the aegis of #EndSARS Season 2, vowed to defy government’s order banning the protest.
In affirmation of their plan, one of the protesters, Kunle Ajayi said nothing would stop the demonstration from holding.
A few weeks ago another group, under the aegis of #DefendLagos threatened to organise a counter-protest at Lekki toll gate.
After Federal Government’s warnings it was disclosed by the group that it would not allow act of violence under the guise of protests, but Federal Government are still standing their ground, advising those behind the #OccupyLekkiprotest to desist.
On the part of Lagos State Government, where the planned protest is to be held, the Lagos State Government was concerned beyond just the effects of the protest, but also warned that it would no more tolerate destruction of lives and property in the state.
