Nigerian influencer and #EndSARS campaigner, Feyikemi FK Abudu has assured arrested #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters that help is on the way.
Abudu disclosed this on her verified Twitter handle on Saturday morning after reports that policemen have arrested dozens of protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
Although the destination of the arrested protesters is unknown, Abudu said that “our lawyers are getting ready to head to Adeniji station, or wherever they will take them.”
Speaking further, she questioned the justification of the arrest – “I really want to know the made-up justification for these unlawful arrests because these people had just gotten there.”
