At present, there are a large number of security personnel here, and no one is allowed to walk on the road without raising their hands.

Some young members of the Eleko community in the Ibeju Lekki area of ​​Lagos began a protest.

The protest, which began on Monday morning, became violent because apparently the young men met with some security officials regarding the enforcement of the COVID-19 blockade in the community.
