Nigerian youths demanding an end to police brutality Monday morning blocked the ever-busy Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos State, causing a heavy traffic gridlock along the Ozumba Mbadiwe Road in Victoria Island linking to the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

The toll gate operated by the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) has been a focal point since the commencement of the renewed protests due to the calibre of persons that pass through the route.

Chanting anti-police brutality slogans, they called on the authorities to genuinely end the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a notorious police unit that has been “disbanded” several times in the past but continued to operate.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu announced the latest disbandment on Sunday.

Motorists affected by the gridlock caused by the protest can be heard blaring their car horns loudly to disperse the crowd.
