EndSARS: Lagos Police warns against protest

Adeze Ojukwu
 Lagos State Police Command has again warned against any gathering, procession or protest in Lagos State, saying ‘some unpatriotic individuals and groups are planning to embark on the replica of the recent destructive and violent Endsars protest that left pains and agonies in Lagos State.’
Threatening to suppress any unauthorized gathering, the command said, ‘any unlawful gathering, procession or protest will be suppressed professionally in accordance with the provisions of the law.’
This was contained in a press statement, posted on the command’s tweeter handle @LagosPoliceNg by the State Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO) and Superintendent of Police Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
The Command also tweeted that it ‘has reliably gathered intelligence that certain individuals/groups.’
The tweet reads:
‘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 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 Command also warns parents and guardians to warn and 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  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.’
