Police have arrested popular comedian Debo Adebayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni, at the Lekki toll gate.
The comedian joined other protesters at the tollgate to protest against the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry permitting the Lekki Concession Company LCC to reopen the Lekki tollgate on Saturday.
Mr. Macaroni’s phone and some of other protesters were seized by police while they were all being locked up.
In a Live Instagram video before his phone and those of other arrested protesters were seized, the comedian lamented that;
“Lekki is under military rule.
How did you think the reopening of tollgate is the next line of action?
If you didn’t do that today, we won’t have a right to be here.
It is a disrespect to say that you want to reopen at this tollgate. Are you spitting on the graves of the dead?
We also have a right to be heard. We have a right to protest peacefully”.
