According to the News outlet, the protester was arrested after some Juju (Charms), and Cutlass were discovered on him by the security agents (policemen) present at the Tollgate to ensure that law and order are maintained.
In some of the photos made available on social media by BBC, the man was seen being dragged away by the security men. Other pictures from the scene also show the charms and cutlass discovered in the possession of the protester.
Check out the BBC News' Facebook post that captured the story and some of the photos from the scene of the arrest below:
Recall that police had earlier refused to approve the EndSAR-Memorial protest put together by the EndSARS protests organizers to mark the alleged Lekki Tollgate massacre which took place a year ago.
