The Lagos State police command has warned against any form of protest or gathering.
The police cited violent attacks on officers, men, formations and innocent Nigerians at different parts of the metropolis. Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Tuesday, also referred to the 24 hours curfew imposed by the state government. The order takes effect from 4pm of Tuesday.
“Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that henceforth, no protest or gathering or possession, under whatever guise, is permitted”, Adejobi noted.
He said all security agencies have deployed adequate personnel to take charge and enforce the curfew across the state. The command regretted the burning of Orile Police Station.
The spokesman added that, “some of our policemen were critically injured and unconfirmed reports state that one of them is dead”.
“Its crystal clear that the End SARS protest has been hijacked by hoodlums who want to run down the state.”
Adejobi declared that the Police Command will resist anarchy and unrest with all powers within the ambit of the law.
