Following violent attacks on police officers, innocent Nigerians and the 24-hour curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government with effect from 4pm, Tuesday October 20, the Lagos State Police Command has placed a ban on all gatherings and protests across the state.
The state police disclosed this in a media release issued on Tuesday by its Spokesman, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
“The Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that henceforth no protest or gathering or possession, under whatever guise, is permitted within Lagos State.”
In the light of the above, he noted that all security agencies have deployed adequate personnel to take charge and enforce the curfew across the state.
Meanwhile, the command regrets to confirm the setting ablaze of Orile Police State today at about 10am, where some of our policemen were critically injured and unconfirmed reports state that one of them is dead.
He added, “It is 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 sustenance of human rights and democratic tenets, the police cautioned the public to comply with the curfew and desist from any act of violence in the state as the command will resist such in totality.Follow us on social media
