LCC reveals ignorance at monthly income being generated at Lekki Toll Gate

Published

The Managing Director of the Lekki Concession Company (LCC), Yomi Omomuwasan, has revealed his ignorance at the monthly income being generated by the company at the Lekki Toll Gate.

The LCC is the operator of the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge and the Admiralty Circle Plaza along the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

During a guest appearance at Nigeria Info 99.3 on Thursday, February 19; Omomuwasan said it will take up to four months to finish repair works at the Lekki toll gate which was burnt last October in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests against police brutality.

Eyewitnesses had claimed protesters died while some were injured when soldiers allegedly opened fire on youths on October 20, 2020, at the Lekki toll gate which was a major demonstration ground during the protest.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry mandated the handover of the tollgate back to LCC but youths under the #OccupyLekki campaign last Saturday kicked against the planned reopening of the toll gate.

According to them, justice must be served to the victims of the October 20 incident.

However, the LCC MD insisted that the company was the major victim of the protest because its facilities were destroyed during the riot that trailed the protest.

“We’ve always said that we are not part of the problem, we are not part of the #EndSARS issue, we are just a company, operating and working on its own, and all of a sudden, you find out one day that you have been forced out of your location. And if the place has been cleared, for us, it means we can go back to our normal life,” he said during the programme.”

When asked how much the LCC made per month before October 2020, the official said, “We don’t have a figure to that. We don’t know.”

Speaking on the company’s comeback plan, Omomuwasan said, “First, we will estimate and evaluate the asset that is burnt down, once we put a figure to it, we will approach the insurance company to a claim.

“We will then go on to do e-tolling procurements, conduct civil works, engage the restoration of the cablings. That will take the next four months for us to get to that point. It takes an average of six months to one year to build a tolling system anywhere in the world.”
