A video captured live from Macaroni’s Instagram captured the moment he was whisked away and his phone seized together with others in a black maria van.
Recall that syndicates of security operatives were stationed at the toll gate following the planned #OccupyLekkitollgate which was organized to register their displeasure against the reopening of the toll gate.
Falz shared the live video on his page saying that the Nigerian government has put aside the Rule of Law and disregarded the democracy of the country. According to him, the government is not interested in serving justice for the lives which were lost after the October gunshot incident and warned them against the impending consequences of their ‘senseless’ act.
@mrmacaroni1 and a number of other innocent Nigerians have just been arrested at the Lekki Toll Gate for exercising their fundamental human right to protest.
The Nigerian government has shown by this senseless act that it is not concerned with upholding our democracy or the Rule of Law.
They are basically showing that they are not interested in serving justice as regards the 20th of October incident.
This show of force is supposed to make us fear for our lives, but the life we dey live no kuku get meaning before.
Absolutely nothing to lose at this point. They better be ready for the consequences of these actions.
