The news on how the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters were released from police detention has emerged from one Modupe Odele, a lawyer. Narrating through her Twitter how some group of lawyers secured their release she wrote:
“I do not care for accolades but I have to speak up with some of the weird narratives being perpetuated on the TL today.
“On Saturday volunteer lawyers worked from about 10 am to 11 pm to make sure 40 persons were released. The journey started from Adeniji & ended at a mobile court.
“From Adeniji they moved to Ikeja and then to Panti and finally the arrested persons were arraigned. They were prepared the docs right there and represented the arrested person. After all that work, I find it odd that strange people are coming out to the woodwork to claim credit
“My default is to mind my business, keep quiet and just do the work. But it seems silence doesn’t do us much good.”
