Residents of Lagos State have been warned against holding any protests in remembrance of the EndSARS protest, according to the Lagos State Police Command.
Remember that in October 2020, Nigerian teenagers came to the streets to demand an end to police brutality.
Unfortunately, after being seized by thugs, the demonstration turned violent.
However, there have been speculations that a new demonstration will take place in honor of those who died during the previous one.
In a statement made by its spokesperson, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, the State Police Command warned against such protests.
According to him, “Nigerians cannot afford to relive the distasteful experience of last year’s protest which caused pain loss of properties.”
He warned individuals or groups who may want to stage an anniversary protest to squash the idea or face the full weight of the law.
“The Command wishes to use this medium to warn the youths, groups, or associations planning such protest to jettison the idea forthwith.
“The police in the state will not fold their arms and allow some misguided elements disrupt the peace and serenity currently being enjoyed in the state.
“Also, we will use all legitimate means within their constitutional powers to suppress the planned protest.
“Parents and guardians are advised to warn their children against participating in the planned protest.
“Lastly, Individuals or groups sponsoring such protest are also warned in their own interest to desist from such plans or face the law,” the statement said.
