Police warn Lagosians against unauthourised protest over new land use charge

Police in Lagos State have warned residents against any form of street rally or protests without approval.

Alternatively, the Police urge those disagreeing with the policies of the state government to seek a legal option.

Spokesman of the state police command, Chike Oti, addressing newsmen in Ikeja, said they are aware of a plan by those he labelled as mischief makers calling themselves right activists, to continue the ongoing protest against the new land use charge.

According to him, the activists plan to block the Third Mainland Bridge and occupy critical public infrastructure to protest the revised land use charge.

“As it stands, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State has not received any application from any group wishing to carry out protest in any part of the state.

“It is therefore advised that these individuals wanting to protest government decision should consult with the police as it was the case with the Nigeria Bar Association before they carried out their peaceful protest.

“When that is done, the police will provide the needed security and ensure it will not be hijacked by hoodlums.

“The Command wishes to warn those concerned that any attempt by any individual or group of persons to cause a breach of the peace or infringe on the rights of others to pursue their daily aspirations, would be met with stiff resistance,” he warned.
