“They came yesterday and said they did not want to see anybody around the toll gate and we should remove our belongings. They said we were the people that testified against them during the #EndSARS protest, and they read the reports and knew many of us who spoke to the media.
“Some people took their property out, but others could not. They are still here as we speak, burning property yet to be removed. There is a heavy security presence around the toll gate.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said he was not aware of the demolition.
“I will ask the task force and get back to you,” he added.
