We will resist EndSARS protest – Lagos CP
Lagos State CP, Hakeem Odumosu

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has explained the reason his men arrested some of the people marking the first anniversary of #ENDSARS in Lekki.

According to him, they violated an ‘agreement’ the police reached with the organisers, that the anniversary observers would remain in their vehicles.

He said those arrested were picked on ground.

He also told newsmen that they even ran foul of the the duration agreement with the protesters.


Odumosu said, “The activists had informed us that their activity will start by 8am and last till 10am.

“They had an agreement with us that they will be having a car procession, which they are done with and have left.
“They told us that they finished their activity around 10am, adding that whoever was found still hanging around is not part of them.

“Those you can see around now are hoodlums who want to steal and cause destruction.”
