Crisis is on the horizon as the approval of the reopening of Lekki tollgate by the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the rumoured killing at the tolling gate has pitted some youths against each other.

Following the approval, some  twitter users called for a protest against the reopening on Saturday, February 13 at the tollgate under the hashtag,   #OccupyLekkiTollGate.

However, a counter-protest is being planned for the same venue on the same date with the planners also mobilizing on the social media.

The counter-rally hastagged, #DefendLagos and #DemNoBornYourPapaWell, is currently trending on twitter.

It remains to be seen how the protests will pan out but a bloody clash is on the horizon.
