The Lagos State Police Command has promised to resist any form of the planned protest, procession or gathering in Lagos State as the government and people of Lagos is still trying to get over the wounds of the recent End SARS violence that wreaked havoc on the state.

In a statement released by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the command said based on intelligence gathered from relevant agencies,

The statement reads:

“some unpatriotic elements or group of people have concluded plans to orchestrate another set of violence in the state in furtherance to the recent End SARS 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 grief 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,” the statement read.
