Lagos Police warn residents against nationwide protests

Adegoke Fayoade, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has cautioned that law and order violations disguised as protests will not be condoned.

The CP, in a statement signed by Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, on Sunday, assured Lagosians that the Command has put in place necessary measures to ensure the safety of lives and property, free flow of traffic, and a peaceful environment for carrying out their respective lawful duties.

“This assurance has become imperative following news making the rounds about nationwide protests billed to start on Monday, February 26, 2024, an action capable of grounding commercial activities and obstructing free flow of traffic.

” The Command will live up to its mandate of ensuring that no person or group of persons is allowed to infringe on the fundamental human rights of others, especially the rights to freedom of movement and right to dignity of human persons.

” CP Adegoke, therefore, warns all intending protesters that anyone found infringing on the rights of other Nigerians will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Meanwhile, CP Adegoke once again enjoins all peace loving Lagosians to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, reiterating that adequate security assets have been strategically deployed to ensure their safety and security,” the statement said.
