The Lagos Police Command on Sunday, banned all forms of protests and gatherings in the state. This is coming on the heels of the alleged planned second phase of #ENDSARS protests billed to commence Monday in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and other cities.
Organisers of the protests who have raised awareness on the social media said the second phase was to demand among other things; the release of all protesters detained during the first action, unfreezing of all accounts that were frozen by the Central Bank of Nigeria as a result of ENDSARS protest and a referendum.
However, the Lagos Police Command in a statement by spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, warned that no such gathering would be permitted.
It said some unpatriotic individuals and groups were planning to embark on the replica of the recent destructive and violent Endsars protest that left pains and agonies in Lagos State.
“The command wishes to reiterate that any unlawful gathering, procession or protest will be suppressed professionally in accordance with the provisions of the law,” a part of the statement read.
