The Lagos state Police command has threatened to resist any form of protest or gathering in the state following the aftermath of the #EndSARS Protests.
In a statement on Thursday, Lagos Police also revealed that credible intelligence reports indicate that certain individuals have concluded plans to carry out another wave of protests/violence in the state. The command also lamented that #EndSARS protests wreaked havoc across the state.
“The command wishes to inform the general public that based on intelligence gathering from relevant intelligence agencies, some unpatrioric 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.”
“The Police command, emphatically, warns parents and guardians to discourage their children or wards from embarking on any protest in the state as the possibility of hijacking it by armed hoodlums to cause grieve and pains like the recent past is evident.”
