The supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi otherwise known as ‘Obidients’ are currently holding a rally at the Lekki toll gate despite court order and Police directive.
DAILY GIST recalls that the Lagos State Police Command on Friday had issued a directive against organising any form of rallies at the Lekki Toll gate, referencing the subsisting court order that prohibited it.
Many of the supporters who gathered in thousands were seen on Saturday as they marched at the Lekki-Epe Expressway, chanting ‘Obi! Obidient!’
A supporter @Nkemchor shared images from the event, saying that police could not stop them.
“The police presence at Lekki did not stop youths from gathering. Very proud of this generation. If Lekki is your route join them!”
Another supporter @eklepatience also tweeted, “All we want is a genuine leader that’s ready to serve Nigerians we’re not asking for too much nah, just give us Peter Obi. Festac Lagos is Obidient.”
There are indications that he rally holding simultaneously in other parts of Lagos, like Festac town, Surulere and the National Stadium.
