The Lagos Police Command has warned against any gatherings, processions or demonstrations in the state, while revealing that some unpatriotic individuals and groups are planning to embark on another protests.
According to the command, intelligence at its disposal reveal that some individuals and groups have concluded plans to lure unsuspecting Lagosians, especially youths into another round of protest which is proposed to commence today at designated locations across the state.
In a statement on Sunday, the command’s spokesperson, Olumiyiwa Adejobi, declared that the police and indeed security agencies in the state will not fold their hands to such plot.
“The Lagos State Police command wishes to re-echo and remind the general public that the government of Lagos State, businesses, individuals and security families still groan in losses and pains that the last violent #EndSARS protest occasioned.
Lagos State is still nurturing the wounds orchestrated by some violent #EndSARS protesters and not fit to accommodate such protest for now.
“In the light of the above, the Lagos State Police Command therefore, warns those who might want to disguise under the #EndSARS protest to cause another set of mayhem, brouhaha and violence in the state, to desist from such plans as the police and other security agencies will not fold their arms seeing individuals or groups orchestrating another violence and anarchy in the state,” the statement read in part.
The command also warned parents and guardians to discourage their children and wards from being lured into any act, gathering or protest capable of causing violence in the state.
“The command wishes to reiterate that any unlawful gathering, procession or protest will be suppressed professionally in accordance with the provisions of the law.
“The police command encourages Lagosians and those who are in Lagos for their genuine engagements, to go about their lawful businesses as all hands are on deck to maintain law and order within the length and breadth of Lagos State,” it added.Lagos police
