The Lagos State Police Command has issued warming that it would not allow any group of individuals to embark on any form of protest at the Lekki Gate.

The confirmation was made on behalf of the command by the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin on Friday.

According to the command, it would not open its eyes to allow any group of people to mislead the residents of the state.

He said, “It has become imperative to reemphasise that no form of rally whatsoever will be allowed at the Lekki Toll gate on October 1, 2022.

“This emphasis has become necessary to enlighten Nigerians that might be misled into converging at the toll gate. A court of competent jurisdiction has ruled that no person is allowed to converge at the Lekki Toll gate for whatever reason.

“In conformity with its mandate to protect life and property, the Lagos State Police Command under the leadership of the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, will leave no stone unturned in ensuring total compliance with the court order and an emplacement of adequate security in the state.”

He added that it would not give the chance for some people to disturb and infringe on the fundamental rights of other people

“The warning therefore goes that anyone found flouting the court order or infringing on the rights of other Nigerians will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

“Meanwhile, the CP enjoins all peace loving persons to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, reiterating that adequate security assets have been strategically deployed to ensure the safety and security of Nigerians at designated rally venues and across the state at large,” the statement said.
