At Lekki Toll Gate, there is huge gridlock as # EndSARS protestors shut down the expressway on Monday morning.

Despite the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force, the # EndSARS demonstrators reach the Lekki Toll Gate segment of the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos State, to revive demonstrations.

On Sunday afternoon, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, declared the disbandment of the police unit after days of online and offline demonstrations.

But Monday's demonstrators want the authorities to mentally evaluate and retrain all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.
They also called for the release of all demonstrators detained, justice for the slain victims of police brutality and fair compensation for their families.

The protestors have called for higher pay for police officers and the formation of an independent agency to supervise the inquiry.
