Popular Nigerian Comedian, Debo Adebayo, known as Mr Macaroni has been arrested at the Lekki toll gate, alongside other protesters.
Macaroni confirmed this on his Instagram live session in a black maria before the police seized their phones.
Macaroni said the decision to reopen the toll gate is the height of disrespect to those who lost their lives.
He said: “In a circular, the attorney general stated that everyone has a right to protest but observe COVID-19 protocols
“You are saying it’s our right but you’re restricting us. You’ll be arrested if you’re at the toll gate. I’m doing this live to show you that some of us have been arrested.
“The democracy our governors, president enjoy is something people fought for. Let us know if we are in a military regime.
“As a president, how on earth do you think the opening of the toll gate is one of the things to do, till now what justice has come out from that panel. You are bullying youth representatives at the panel. How on earth do you think opening this toll gate is the next line of action?”
