Newmen reports that despite warnings by the Lagos State Police command against the memorial protest, some activists stormed the area (Lekki Tollgate, Lagos State) on Wednesday morning.

It was report that the journalist was picked after failing to present his identity card. In a live video on Facebook Abimbola was sighted being dragged by some police operatives.

Efforts by newmen to reach the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu for comment on the incident, proved abortive as at press time as he could not take his calls.

However, Hakeem Odumosu, the State’s Commissioner of Police had earlier today said the command would deploy all legitimate means to stop or neutralise the planned protests to mark #EndSARS anniversary.
