@olusogaowoeye said, 
“Show your love for our Lagos. Get your friends and your neighbours to be there. Join The Defend Lagos Rally at the Lekki Toll Plaza on the 13th of February. We will not cede our city to criminals and insurrectionists. Lagos is our Pride. #defendlagos.” 
@DrOlufunmilayo said, 
“#DefendLagos is NOT about defending Lagos. It’s an official confirmation that hoodlums will be used to cause maximum violence and chaos. It is a very subtle way of saying they will burn, destroy and kill just to continue money collection at Lekki Toll Gate.”

@MrLekanAdigun said, 

“Can’t we true born Nigerians mobilise against these terrorists? We can’t just sit back and watch these anarchists who have nothing to lose destroy our country.”
