Following the planned protest by the organized labour over the current economic hardship in the country, police authorities in Lagos State have warned that break down of law and order will not be tolerated under the guise of protest.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade, who spoke in a statement signed by the spokesman of the Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, on Sunday, assured residents of Lagos that the Command has put necessary measures in place to ensure safety of lives and property, free flow of traffic and a peaceful environment for carrying out their respective lawful duties.

CP Adegoke, warned all intending protesters that anyone found infringing on the rights of other Nigerians will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Part of the statement reads, “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 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,” the statement said
