In light of the mayhem and violence unleashed in Lagos by hoodlums, the police command in the state has banned all forms of protests starting from Tuesday, October 20.
According to a statement made available to Legit.ng by SP Oluwamuyiwa Adejobi, the police public relations officer in the state, no protest or gathering or possession, under whatever guise, is permitted within Lagos.
The command, therefore, informed all Lagosians that it is working with all security agencies that have already been to enforce the curfew and the ban on all protests.
Part of the statement read:
"In the same vein, the command regrets to confirm the setting ablaze of Orile Police Station today at about 10am, where some of our policemen were critically injured and unconfirmed reports state that one of them is dead.
"Its crystal clear that the Endsars protest has been hijacked by hoodlums who want to run down the state and the police command will resist such state of anarchy, unrest and brouhaha with all powers within the ambit of the law.
"While the command is resolute in the sustenance of human rights and democratic tenets, the general public is hereby warned to comply with the curfew and desist from any act of violence in the state as the command will resist such in totality."
