Court Nullify Toll Collection On The Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has nullified the collection of a toll on the Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge. 

The court presided over by Justice Saliu Saidu held that the power of control of all navigable waterways in Nigeria, resides in the Federal Government.

The court further held that from all the documents before it, the only justification for the toll fee on the bridge by Lagos State is the private partnership law which cannot apply to the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge as it was built with the money of Lagos State government without any private partnership arrangement.
Human Rights lawyer Ebun Adegboruwa who filed the suit commended of the judge for his courage.
