The Lagos Police Force has ordered a stop to any protest, gathering, or possession under whatever guise within the state.
This is coming after a 24 hour curfew was imposed in the State by the Lagos State Government.
In a press release signed by the public relations officer in Lagos, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, this is due to the new development of violent attacks on police officers and innocent Nigerians in Lagos State.
According to him ” all security agencies have deployed adequate personnel to take charge and enforce the curfew across the state.
“In the same vein, 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.
Its 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 general public is hereby warned to comply with the curfew and desist from any act of violence in the state as the command will resist such in totality.”
