The Lagos State Police Command has said it will not condone any form of planned protest, procession or gathering under any guise or nomenclature in Lagos State because the government and people of Lagos are still nurturing the wounds of the recent #Endsars protests that was hijacked by hoodlums who wreaked havoc across the state.
The command said based on intelligence gathering from relevant intelligence agencies, some unpatriotic elements or group of people had concluded plans to orchestrate another wave of violence in the state in furtherance to the recent violence that followed the EndSars protests.
The command therefore seized the opportunity to warn any individuals, group of students or any groups who might want to stage any form of protest, either “peaceful” or violent, or gathering whatsoever, to desist as the police and other security agencies will collectively and tactically resist any security threats or threats to public peace.
A statement by the Police PRO, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi quotes the command as urging parents and guardians to dissuade their children or wards from embarking on any protest in the state because there is the possibility of hijacking it by armed hoodlums to cause grief and pains for all and sundry in the state.
Members of the public were also charged to ignore any call for protest and go about their lawful businesses as all hands are on deck to maintain law and order and public safety across the State.
