The spokeman said such demonstrations, whether peaceful or violent, will not be allowed to take place โ€œas the government and people of Lagos still nurture the wounds of the recent Endsars violence that wrecked havocs across the stateโ€.

The Lagos police command says it will resist any attempt to organise protest within the state.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, police public relations officer in the state, announced this in a statement on Thursday.

He said the command gathered information that some persons within the state are planning to regroup for the #EndSARS protest.

โ€œThe command wishes to inform the general public that based on intelligence gathering from relevant intelligence agencies, some unpatriotic elements or group of people have concluded plans to orchestrate another set of violence in the state in furtherance to the recent Endsars violence, which has been analysed as dangerous and counterproductive,โ€ the statement read.

โ€œPremised on this, the command, therefore, wishes to warn any individuals, group of students or any groups who might want to stage any form of protest, either โ€œpeacefulโ€ or violent, or gathering whatsoever, to desist as the police and other security agencies will collectively and tactically resist any security threats or threats to public peace which might be triggered by protest or protesters in Lagos State.โ€

Adejobi asked parents and guardians to discourage their children or wards from embarking on any protest in the state.

He added that the โ€œpossibility of hijacking it by armed hoodlums to cause grieve and pains like the recent past is evident.โ€

โ€œWe encourage the general public to ignore any call for protest and go about their lawful businesses as all hands are on deck to maintain law and order and public safety across the length and breadth of the state,โ€ he said.
