Just In: Nigerian Police lands tough, declares no protest on October 1st

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has instructed operatives of the command to disallow societies, under whatever disguise, from staging rallies or protests on October 1.

Odumosu while reading the riot act on Wednesday during a security meeting with the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Department at the State Headquarters in Ikeja warned that the command will not allow gatherings against the sovereignty of Nigeria.

The Commissioner warned parents and guardians to warn their children and wards to stay away from demonstrations against the federal government.

“Anyone arrested for such actions will be prosecuted”, the commissioner warned.

Odumosu further appealed to the public to be law-abiding and desist from acts capable of disrupting the sovereignty of the nation.

The Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Information and Communication Technology, Celestine Okoye, on behalf of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, told police officers to maintain law and order in Lagos and repel forces that can disintegrate Nigeria.
