BREAKING: End SARS: Police vow to suppress any protest in Lagos
The Lagos Police Command has again warned against End SARS gatherings in the state.
Demonstrations are expected to resume on Monday December 7, 2020 at designated locations across the metropolis.
Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Sunday said “unpatriotic individuals and groups are planning to embark on the replica of recent violent End SARS protest”.
He said the intelligence revealed that the sponsors plan to lure unsuspecting Lagosians, especially youths, to join.
The Police reminded everyone that the Government of Lagos State, businesses, individuals, security agencies and families have recovered from the civil disorder in October.
“Lagos State is still nurturing the wounds orchestrated by some violent End SARS protesters and not fit to accommodate such protest for now.
“Lagos State Police Command therefore warns those who might want to disguise under End SARS protest to cause another set of mayhem in the state, to desist from such plans.”
The statement stressed that the police and other agencies will not fold their arms and allow another anarchy.
The command warned parents and guardians to discourage their children and wards against protest.
It added that “any unlawful gathering, procession or protest will be suppressed professionally in accordance with the provisions of the law”.
The police advised residents to go about their lawful activities, assuring that all hands are on deck to maintain law and order.
