PROPOSED PROTESTS: Breakdown of law won’t be tolerated – CP Fayoade

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police CP Adegoke Fayoade, has warned those who intend to participate in today’s protest against fomenting violence.

CP Fayoade stressed that a breakdown of law and order in the state won’t be tolerated.

Fayoade disclosed this in a press release issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, on the command’s official X page.

According to the release, Adegoke assured residents that the police have put necessary measures in place to ensure the safety of lives and property, free flow of traffic, and a peaceful environment.

The statement read, “The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Adegoke Fayoade, has assured Lagosians that the Command has put necessary measures in place 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 the 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”.
