According to the reports reaching Naijaloaded, popular comedian, Debo Adebayo also known as Mr Macaronii, who was arrested earlier today was among the 40 protesters who were granted bail.
However, we reported earlier that two Lekki lawyers who condemned the incident claiming they had commenced efforts to free the protesters and ensure that their fundamental rights were not violated.
As at the time of writing, it was not ascertained if it was the lawyers’ efforts that lead to their freedom.
I would also be recalled that the Buhari administration has earlier warned of severe consequences for anyone who took part in the demonstration after seeing it as an attempt to destabilise public peace.
We will bring you more details shortly.
