Gridlock grounds Lekki as LP supporters rally at toll-gate

Eyewitness reports have shown that the Labour Party presidential rally has grounded traffic activities at the Lekki toll gate.

This is coming after the order of Justice Daniel Osiagor not to hold a rally at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos.

Justice Osiagor, while ruling on a motion for injunction filed by 10 plaintiffs, who were asking the court to, among others, restrain the Labour Party, its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, its national chairman, Julius Abure and their loyalists from holding the rally at that location, also ordered the Inspector-General of Police and the Lagos State Police Commissioner to make sure that there is heavy compliance with the order.

The Judge held that the rally can pass through the venue to access Falomo Bridge and other venues at which the Labour party supporters plan to assemble before proceeding rally.

The ‘Obidients’ as they are called, gathered on Saturday morning at the toll gate despite heavy police presence on the ground.

According to eyewitness reports, private and commercial bus drivers found alternative routes out of the traffic on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, as the traffic was almost at a standstill.
