Lekki Shooting: Alex Ekubo Suggests Rename Of Tollgate

Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo has suggested a rename of the Lekki tollgate, in honour of lives that were lost at the protest ground on Tuesday, October 20.

AllNews earlier reported that the protesters at the Lekki tollgate came under heavy gunfire, shortly after the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced a 24-hour curfew, due to perceived violence.

Reports say some died, many were injured as others fled for their lives upon the gunfire, after soldiers arrived at the protest ground around 6:30 pm on Tuesday.

In a tweet on his Twitter page, Ekubo suggested that the tollgate be renamed "Lekki Memorial Way", asking his followers if they agree.
