The Adekunle section of Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State has been blocked by youths protesting against police brutality and bad governance in Nigeria.

Edujandon.com gathered that the protesters only allowed vehicles on emergency services access to the bridge..



It was learnt that the protesters had earlier marched to Panti and Adekunle Police Station in a bid to register their grievances.

One of the protesters, Dotun, said that taking the protest to Panti was deliberate.

Against reports that the protesters burnt Adekunle Police Station, Dotun said, “We did not burn the station or attacked anyone there. We just stood near the gate and that of Panti to show our pains. We know that they have many SARS operatives there.”

Youths took to the streets again in Lagos State on Monday as the protests against police brutality snowballed into calls for good governance in the country.


According to Amnesty International on Monday, at least 15 people have been killed, including two policemen, since the protests started.

Amnesty had reported a death toll of 10 last Thursday, a week after the protests erupted.
