The Lagos State Police Command says it will not tolerate any form of gathering at the Lekki Tollgate in the state on Friday, October 20 to mark the third anniversary of the #EndSARS incident.
Spokesman of the command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin gave the warning in a statement issued on his handle.
This comes amidst plans by various activists including skit maker and comedian, Mr Macaroni to mark the occasion with a peaceful walk.
According to Mr. Macaroni, he will be participating in the peaceful walk to honour those who lost their lives on October 20, 2020, during the #EndSARS protests.
“3 Years now!!! We will Never Forget!!! #EndSars!!!! We will be walking peacefully to honor all those who lost their lives on 20/10/2020!!! We also walk for all those who have lost their lives as a result of police brutality in Nigeria!!! We walk in peace!!! We will never forget!” Mr. Macaroni tweeted on Thursday.
SP Hundeyin in his statement noted that no gathering or convergence whatsoever would be allowed anywhere around the toll gate.
“Buses at/by Oriental Hotel suggests stopping/waiting of buses and gathering of passengers. For the avoidance of doubt, no gathering/convergence whatsoever would be allowed anywhere around the toll gate,” Hundeyin said.
Hundeyin, however, added that the police would be fully on the ground to ensure security for all persons participating in a peaceful walk, as long as they are not obstructing traffic.
