The Police in Lagos have disproved the viral video being circulated, describing it as fake and insisting that no #EndSARS protest happened at the Lekki toll plaza on Monday, December 7, 2020.
The Lagos State Police Command made this disclosure in a statement titled, ‘No Protest, gathering in Lagos’, signed by its Public Relations Officer (PRO), SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Monday, December 7, 2020.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa cautioned that the police are prepared to deal decisively with anybody, who engages in lawlessness in the name of staging any fresh protest that could lead to a breach of peace and order in the state.
Olumuyiwa in the statement said, “The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video of a protest at Lekki Tollgate, Lagos State, purported to have been staged today 7th December 2020.
“The Command wishes to debunk the fake video that has been circulated to create tension and destabilise security network in the state. The video was one of the viral videos released during the recent violent #EndSARS protest before the Lekki Tollgate plaza was set ablaze by the violent protesters on 21st October 2020.
“The command, therefore, urges the general public to regard the video as baseless and mischievous. The command also wishes to appeal to the general public to remain calm and go about their lawful businesses as the police are prepared to deal decisively, within the ambit of the law, with any act of lawlessness that could lead to a breakdown of law and order in the state.”
