Police Ban All Forms Of Protest On Saturday In Lagos State

February 11, 2021

The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu has declared that no protest will be allowed to hold at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday, 13th February.


The Lagos Police chief made the submission in reaction to the planned protest by two different factions over the reopening of the Lekki tollgate plaza by the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality.

It will be recalled that after the decision, some youths started an online protest with the hashtags #RevolutionNow and #OccupyLekkiTollGate noting that it was wrong to reopen the tollgate for business when justice had not been served on the alleged killing of protesters during a clash with security operatives in October 2020.


However, the Lagos State Police has now declared that no protest will hold at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday, February 13, 2020.


The Lagos CP on Thursday said,


 “Allowing both groups to carry out their planned protests will be counter-productive.


 “No protest in any guise will be allowed to take place on Saturday 13th February 2021.”


The federal government, earlier, had also declared that it won’t allow the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest to hold due to security reasons as it has gotten intelligence reports that some people are trying to hijack the protest to destabilize the country.

Is it a crime for someone to perform it civil right?
