The Lagos state police Command has issued a stern warning over the ongoing plan by some groups to begin “the mother of all protest” across the country to drive home their demands against police brutality, bad governance and insecurity.
Oyogist.com learnt that the police said it would not allow any demonstration under any guise because Lagosians were still consoling themselves due to the wounds of the violence that trailed the #ENDSARS protest.
Lagos police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the command received intelligence on another planned protest.
He said: “Unpatriotic elements or group of people have concluded plans to orchestrate another set of violence in the state in furtherance to the recent #ENDSARS violence, which has been analysed as dangerous and counterproductive.
“Premised on this, the command, therefore, wishes to warn individuals, group of students or any group who might want to stage any form of protest, either ‘peaceful’ or violent, or gathering whatsoever, to desist.
“The police and other security agencies will collectively and tactically resist any security threat or threats to public peace which might be triggered by protest or protesters in Lagos State”.
