Nigerians on social media are angered by the arrest of some suspected #occupylekkitollgate protesters who were picked up this morning at Lekki toll gate.
The protesters were whisked away in police vans as the Lagos state police command and the federal government earlier warned that the protest will not hold.
Comedian, Mr. Macaroni was also arrested this morning at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Nigerians have condemned the arrest and have called for their release using different hashtags; #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria, #EndPoliceBrutality, #EndSARS, and #Lekkitollgate.
Some commenters faulted the government for sitting down with Northern bandits to negotiate, but choose to arrest peaceful protesters at Lekki Toll Gate.
