Screen diva, Kate Henshaw, fellow Nollywood actress, Stephaine Coker, and other netizens on Monday reacted to the planned reopening of Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge toll collection in April.
Their reaction was spurred by a statement by the Managing Director of Lekki Concession Company Limited, Yomi Omomuwasan, that though operations would begin on April 1, fees would not be collected until April 15.
Recall that WuzupNigeria reported that the operations of the Lekki Toll Plaza was suspended after the infamous EndSARS demonstration that saw many protesters shot in October 2020.
Reacting to Omomuwasan's statement, Kate Henshaw mockingly tweeted; "The death toll is about to be opened for business.
Her tweet was followed up by Stephanie Coker who also wrote on her handle; "The bill for my car as a result of bad fuel is N3.7m, a 2020 car o! Diesel is now N780, and now that the power grid has collapsed, it will probably increase.
"I drove by Lekki Toll Gate and it states toll charges will resume on April fools day. Are we fools or are we being fooled?.
@moneysenseng said; "This is very tough because the toll gate reminds us of the evil committed by this government on that faithful night. The question now is, should the company be held responsible for the 'crime' and be shut down?
@nonsookongwu1 said; "Someone should explain this to me like I'm 5 This money they collect from the LCC Tollgate ehh, what is it for? Are we paying for the road they used our own money to do or what???? What exactly is the money for, I'd love to really know.
@akin_akins said; "I have a friend who is a staff of LCC. The company has been out of business since the #EndSARS protest because the only business they do is toll collection. They're desperate to resume toll collection, not for the benefit of anybody but themselves. The toll is a cash cow for them.
@Tomisinofnaija said; "If they wanna open the business no qualms I only have issue with it cuz it will be use to fund Tinubu campaign If it's going to Lagos state pocket no shit".
