Nigerian security forces have detained at least 12 people following protests over the reopening of the Lekki toll gate in Lagos on Saturday.
The toll plaza was the scene of a fatal shooting of unarmed protesters by Nigerian soldiers on October 20.
The facility had been shut since the night of the shooting, but a judicial panel — set up by authorities to investigate reports of police brutality and the violent crackdown of #EndSARS protesters by the army — recently voted for its reopening.
Supporters of #EndSARS have disapproved of the panel’s decision. Many view the reopening of the tollgate as ill-timed and inconsiderate to victims of the Lekki shootings.
