The Lagos State Government has reportedly lost at least N234m in the last 9 days to the closure of tollgates by the #EndSARS protesters.

A Lagos State commissioner told PUNCH that the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge was expected to generate about N10m daily, while the Admiralty Circle Plaza along the Lekki-Epe Expressway was not expected to generate less than N16.6m a day.

The commissioner said the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge was not expected to generate less than N300m monthly, while the Admiralty Circle Plaza generates about N500m monthly.

Reacting, the commissioner said;

“At least 80,000 cars use the tollgates every day. The figure could be higher or lower depending on the day of the week.

However, since the protests started, the Lekki tollgate has been completely shut, while the Ikoyi one has been left permanently open for people to use without payment,”

he said.

Heavy duty trucks/buses with two or more heavy axles pay N1,000 at the Admiralty Circle Plaza on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, according to the LCC.
