Following these developments, the tollgate’s tolling operations were suspended amid demands for justice for the shooting victims.
The adjacent Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge’s tolling was also impacted, and it was suspended.
Lekki Concession Company is in charge of overseeing tolling on the Lekki Expressway and Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge (LCC).
