Supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi are currently holding a rally at the Lekki toll gate despite police directive against it.
Thousands of Obi’s supporters were seen Marching at the Lekki-Epe Expressway, chanting ‘Obi! Obidient!’.
A supporter of the Labour Party presidential Candidate known as simply Cynthia shared images from the event, saying that police could not stop them.
“The police presence at Lekki did not stop youths from gathering. Very proud of this generation. If Lekki is your route join them!”
Another supporter @eklepatience also tweeted, “All we want is a genuine leader that’s ready to serve Nigerians we’re not asking for too much nah, just give us Peter Obi. Festac Lagos is Obidient.”
Recall that the Lagos State Police Command on Friday issued a directive against organising any form of rallies at the Lekki Toll gate, referencing the subsisting court order that prohibited it.
The rally is expected to hold simultaneously in other parts of Lagos, like Festac town, Surulere and the National Stadium.
