#EndSARS: No form of Protest either Peaceful or Violent will be Tolerated in Lagos - Police Warn (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Lagos state Police Command has said it will tactically resist any form of protest whatsoever that may be organized again within the state.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Police public relations officer of the state disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, November 5, 2020.

According to him, the command is aware that some unpatriotic Nigerians are planning to regroup for another round of #EndSARS protest within the state.

He warned that such protests, be it peaceful or violent, will not be allowed to take place as the government and people of Lagos are still suffering the wounds of the recent Endsars violence that wrecked havoc across the state.

The statement read in part; “The command wishes to inform the general public that based on intelligence gathering from relevant intelligence agencies, some 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 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 which might be triggered by protest or protesters in Lagos State.”

Adejobi also urged parents and guardians to discourage their children or wards from embarking on or joining any protest scheduled to take place in the state.

“The possibility of hijacking it by armed hoodlums to cause grieve and pains like the recent past is evident.

“We encourage the general public 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 length and breadth of the state,” he concluded.
