"...Lagos State cannot afford to experience any security lapses..."

The Lagos state police command says that no rally will be allowed, under whatever guise, in any part of the State.

The commissioner for police in the state, Hakeem Odumosu in a press briefing also warned Sunday Igboho and the leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Banji Akintoye to stay away from the state.

Odumosu said, “ Lagos State cannot afford to experience any security lapses, breakdown of law and order and threat to public peace at the moment, considering the negative effects and reoccurring agonies of the October 2020 violent #Endsars crisis that led to massive destruction of public and private facilities, while some Police personnel paid the supreme price. This is in addition to many Police stations, barracks and officers’ personal properties that were set ablaze during this period.

 “The Command is still going through those harrowing experiences. It will not be cajoled by the so-called organizers that the rally will be peaceful. That was the same slogan adopted by the organizers of the #Endsars protest that eventually snowballed into crises with attendant massive destruction of lives and properties. The Police will not submit to their antics”.

He hence assured Lagosians of adequate security across the State.
