The officers, who were deployed to man the tollgate amid the protests against the reopening of the plaza, have been on ground since Friday evening.
Two protests, under the hashtags, #OccupyLekkiTollGate and #DefendLagos, were scheduled to hold at the toll plaza area on Saturday.
However, the police command in Lagos had insisted that no protest would be allowed at the tollgate, considering the crisis that erupted during the #EndSARS demonstrations, which led to the loss of lives and destruction of property.
However, many protesters who turned up at the tollgate on Saturday morning were arrested.
As of the time of this report, while no active protest is going on, some security operatives were seen dozing off in various positions.
