Read the statement below;

In preparation for the proposed Endsars protest to be staged by some individuals and hired groups to cause mayhem and security threats in Lagos State, the Lagos State Police Command has ordered the commanders of the Mobile Police Squadrons and Special Protection Unit in Lagos State to withdraw their men from individuals who are not entitled to police aides and escorts in line with the directive of the Inspector-General of Police, to augment its strength.

The Command has deemed it necessary to mop up more mobile men to be deployed across the length and breadth of the state for any eventualities as the police is no longer ready to condone any act of lawlessness, brouhaha and state of anarchy in Lagos State.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has put all police personnel and other security agents in the state on red alert, while he charged them to be professional and act according to the provisions of the law, either in quelling riots or for self defence.

The command had warned against any “peaceful” or violent protest whatsoever in the state to avert further breakdown of law and order, killings, burning and lootings that marred the recent Endsars violent protest in the state.

The Command therefore reiterates its commitment to maintenance of law and order and prevent any act that is capable of causing pains, anarchy and losses of lives and property in the state.”

  1. I don’t think the protest is necessary if and only if what we demanded for is being done or attend to but without that, I can’t say anything for now.

  2. We are more than 200 million and policemen do not up to 300,000. Why won’t they withdraw those police officers. What we need from you is security of lives and properties.

  3. Policemen are not up and doing in the discharging of their duties, government should orientate and reorientate on how to be dealing with Nigerians.

  5. There are some people who doesn’t entitle to the police officers to be escort them but were giving because of one or two things. Withdraw them and deploy them to area where their services are needed.

  6. That’s why I said you are not capable in anything, that asides….don’t inspector general of police know that some are not qualified for aids or to hire police for there security…if you like withdraw and if you like leave them…our own just reform.

  7. The government should try to solve the problems people have complained of and save us this too much useless talks
    Why do you find it difficult to address the issues tabled on ground and lead us right instead you are saying annoying meaningless things
