The Lagos State Police Command has issued a warning that the Yoruba Nation demonstration scheduled for Saturday in the state would be prohibited.
This was revealed by the state Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, at a media conference in Alausa, Ikeja, on Thursday.
“On no account will any actual or rumoured activity, including the planned mega rally, be allowed to lock down the state or impede the normal daily activities of the good people of Lagos State,” Odumosu stated.
“Report available to the police command indicates that some disgruntled elements have perfected plans to infiltrate the ranks of protesters, cause mayhem and seize the opportunity to attack and loot properties of the law-abiding citizens of this state.
“Similarly, it has gotten to the knowledge of the command that the organisers’ foot soldiers and mobilisers have concluded plans to embark on procession on the streets of Lagos as part of the programme for the mega rally.
“The effect of this, if allowed to come to fruition, is better known than imagined on the security, traffic and economic activities of a cosmopolitan state like Lagos.”
Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has already called off the rally.
