The Nigerian police have been seen in several trending videos on social media harassing protesters they arrested at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday.

PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how dozens of protesters by police officers at Lekki Tollgate and were whisked away in a Black Maria.

They were expressing their dissatisfaction with the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to reopen the tollgate months after soldiers opened fire on unarmed #EndSARS protesters.

Beyond the pictures showing how the protesters are being harassed, there are trending videos on Twitter on how the protesters are being dehumanised.

The actions of the police have been condemned by the Socio-Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP) and Amnesty International.
