Officers of the Lagos State Police Command today brutalised defenceless citizens protesting the introduction of a toll gate along the Lekki expressway in Lagos. Eye witnesses say the police threw caution to the wind as they tear-gassed, pushed, shoved, beat protesters, leaving some of them unconscious, the Nigeria Police Watch is reporting.
Some protesters, we are told, were arrested and taken to an unknown destination. Fully armed officers were dispelled to quel the protest which was peaceful until the police moved in.
Please if you witnessed the protest, kindly send us reports, photos and videos.
