One of the campaigners of the #OccupyLekkiTollgate, Kunle Ajayi, has lamented that his life is being threatened by suspected supporters of #DefendLagos.
Ajayi told our correspondent on the telephone on Friday that he had received many threat messages.
According to the activist, one of his attackers threatened to kill him if he attends the protest.
Ajayi, who shared some of the threat messages with our correspondent, however, said he was undaunted.
“After attending a live debate, I started receiving a series of threatening messages on social media and my phone. My life is being threatened. One threatened to kill me. He said I am a fool and my life is in his hand.
“I am only interested in ensuring justice. My concern is good governance but they want me dead,” he added.
Some youths had threatened to hold a fresh protest at the Lekki tollgate over plans to reopen it for operations.
nformation on the online posters showed that the protest is planned to start at 7 am on Saturday, February 13, 2020.
