New Lagosians, a socio-political group has warned miscreants threatening to take laws into their hands by an exercise called ‘OccupyLekki’ to create uneasy calm in Lagos, saying they are ready to resist them.

This was made known by the Protem Chairman, Ekundayo Ibironke that the legal backing of the State government to reopen Lekki tolls followed the laid down procedures.

He says, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu does not believe in taking law into his hands, by seeking for legal interpretation and intervention before returning to business at the Lekki toll gate.

He regretted the revenue loss to the State government running into billions of naira in the last few months of the closure of the gigantic Lekki tolls.

‘We are not unaware that the internally generated revenue, IGR of the State, is the driving force being deployed by the State government to address the unending socio-economic and infrastructural development of the State.
