Protesters in Lagos blocked Third mainland Bridge

The Adekunle section of Third Mainland in Lagos State has been blocked by youths protesting against police brutality and bad governance in Nigeria.

The PUNCH gathered that the protesters only allowed vehicles on emergency services to pass.

It was learnt that the protesters had earlier marched to Panti and Adekunle Police Station to register their grievances.

One of the protesters, Dotun, said that taking the protest to Panti was deliberate.

Against reports that the protesters burnt Adekunle Police Station, Dotun said, “We did not burnt the station or attacked anyone there. We just stood near the gate and that of Panti to show our pains. We know that they have many SARS operatives there.”

According to Amnesty International on Monday, at least 15 people have been killed, including two policemen, since protests started.

Amnesty had reported a death toll of 10 last Thursday, a week after the protests erupted.
