Of the two arrested,one claimed to be a journalist working with a media organisation while the other was a protester carrying a placard.

The police had earlier warned that anyone seen around the lekki toll gate without an ID card would be arrested.

The journalist who claimed while speaking from the van of the task force, said his personal effects which included his phone,driver's license and other documents where taken from him and that his ID card got lost in transit.

It would be recalled that the memorial protest today is in remembrance of the brutal crackdown of protesters at Lekki tollgate a year ago, where it was alleged that youths lost their lives at soldiers opened fire at those present at the venue at the time.

This led to the destruction of private and public properties in Lagos by miscreants.
