#EndSARS: I don’t know how much LCC lost at Lekki tollgate —MD | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f



The Managing Director, Lekki Concession Company, operator of the Lekki tollgate, Mr Abayomi Omomuwa, said that he could not tell how much the LCC lost when the tollgate was occupied by #EndSARS protesters in October.

On whether he was happy about the occupation of the tollgate by protesters leading to loss of revenue for the firm, Omomuwa said he was indifferent.

The LCC MD said this while being cross-examined by a counsel for some #EndSARS protesters, Mr Adesina Ogunlana, before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged shooting and killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers on the night of October 20 at the Lekki tollgate.

When asked by Ogunlana if the LCC lost revenue to the tollgate occupation by protesters, Omomuwa said, “I believe that is the business of the company, not something to discuss in public.”

But when further pressed by Ogunlana, Omomuwa said, “It is obvious, when toll is not collected, revenue is lost?”

But when Ogunlana asked, “How much did the company lose?” Omomuwa replied, “I don’t know.”

Asked if he reported the occupation of the tollgate by the #EndSARS protesters to the Lagos State Government, Omomuwa said he does not report to the Lagos State Government, he only reports to the LCC Board of Directors.

He told the panel that the tollgate was owned by private investors until 2014 when the Lagos State Government acquired it 100 per cent.

  1. Tinubu got the concession to make money from the Toll gate without responsibility. Just arbitrarily fix the toll and that's it.
