The famous Nigerian comedian Debo Adebayo is known as Mr Macaroni arrested by police today at Lekki toll gate.
Mr Macaroni said to have arrested after the police told him “we don’t want you here”.
Adebayo joined the protesters at the tollgate to express their desire over the Lagos State Judicial Panel’s decision allowing its operator, Lekki Concession Company to reopen the Lekki tollgate.
The comedian voiced that “Lekki is under military rule” via a live Instagram before the police seized his phone and arrested other protesters.
The comedian said, “How did you think the reopening of tollgate is the next line of action? If you didn’t do that today, we wouldn’t have a right to be here now.
“It is a shame to say that you want to reopen this Lekki tollgate. Are you spitting on the graves of the dead ones?
“We dey military regime? so we also have a right to be heard. We have every right to protest peacefully.”
The police had earlier warned youths against the planned #occupylekkitollgate protest at the Lekki tollgate on Saturday.
But the youths vowed to defy the government’s order.
