Nollywood actor, Kunle Idowu, also known by the stage name Frank Donga, has reacted to the shooting at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

The movie star and comedian is of the view that the Lekki Tollgate should not have been invaded by armed military officers because it is not a warzone compared to Sambisa Forest.
