The warning came on the heels of plans by some groups to begin “the mother of all protest” across the country in order to drive home their demands against police brutality, bad governance, and insecurity.

But the police command said it would not allow any demonstration under any guise because the Lagosians were still nurturing the wounds of the violence that characterised the #ENDSARS protest.

A statement by spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the command has received Intelligence to the effect that some

“unpatriotic 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 individuals, group of students or any group 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 threat 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.

“We encourage the 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.”
