Ajisebutu warned that the police would not hesitate to use all legal means to stop the protest from taking place following the experience of the last #EndSARS protest.

He said, “Credible intelligence at the disposal of the command has revealed clandestine plans by some youths, individuals, or groups to embark on a protest today in commemoration of the one-year anniversary of #EndSARS.

“Lagosians and indeed Nigerians cannot afford to relive the distasteful experience of last year’s protest which caused pain, anguish, needless loss of lives, and wanton destruction of public and private property.

“In view of the volatility of the present situations in the country and the breakdown of law and order which the planned protest might cause, the Lagos State Police Command sternly warns against any form of protest today.

“The command wishes to use this medium to warn the youth, 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.

“To forestall breakdown of law and order, the police will use all legitimate means within their constitutional powers to suppress the planned protest.”

Ajisebutu also urged parents and guardians to advise their children against participating in the planned protest.

“Adequate and additional security measures have been put in place to ensure the protection of their lives and property today and even beyond,” he added. Aisha Yesufu
