#OccupyLekkiTollGate: Nigerian Comedian, Mr Macaroni Arrested

Comedian Mr Macaroni has been arrested for joining the protest at the Lekki Toll gate.

The 28-year-old revealed this during an Instagram live session on Saturday.

He was still speaking to his fans when he was asked to get into the police vehicle.

“I am bEing arrested, I’m being arrested ooo Nigerians will ask you,” he said.

The protest was held to show displeasure with the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry allowing the Lekki Concession Company to reopen the Lekki tollgate.

Mr Macaroni was arrested alongside some other protesters.

In other news, DJ Switch, a popular female Disc Jockey, who went live during the shooting of protesters at Lekki toll gate, has finally broken silence following the incident.

It will be recalled that on the 20th of October 2020, the world was left stunned as military men stormed the Lekki Toll Plaza to shoot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters.

The Nigerian Army has denied any involvement in the shooting, even stating that videos showing their officers actively shooting at the protesters was photoshopped.

In a new video, DJ Switch gave a detailed account of what happened that night, and the biggest mistake she made.

“I just want to clear a few things that I’ve been seeing online. To our leaders, I urge you please do not minimize the suffering of families. Do not insult the grief of Nigerians, do not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Do not insult the pain that families are facing. People were falling left and right.

Yes there were soldiers there. Another part that people are not really talking about. The police also came, the SARS people we’re talking about also came minutes after the soldiers left. They were tear gassing. It’s like cotonou pepper. Our coconut head generation. They will run and they will come back.

They switched off the lights and it was pitch black. While the soldiers were running around and picking their shells, we were running around and picking their shelves too. The police and SARS were also there, aiming and shooting. Who takes life bullets to a protest? Who does that?”
