EndSARS anniversary: Police vow to avert any protest in Osun

The command says it has discovered plans by some youths and group of people to embark on protest in commemoration of the one-year anniversary of ENDSARS saga in the state.

This is contained in a statement in Osogbo on Monday by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Yemisi Opalola, said police would use legitimate means to avert such protest.

Opalola said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Olawale Olokode, had given marching order to the Area commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Tactical units to be at alert and nip in the bud any act capable of truncating the peace of the state.

The statement read, ”the intelligence that availed the police command revealed underground/nocturnal plans by some youths/group of people to embark on protest in commemoration of one-year anniversary of the ENDSARS saga.

“In view of this, the Commissioner of police, Olawale Olokode, warned individuals or groups of individuals that are planning such in the state and their sponsor(s) to stop the plan or any of such action(s) forthwith.

“The Command will not allow a repeat of last year’s ENDSARS saga and is fully prepared to use all legitimate means to avert such intending protest.

Consequently, the Police Command will not tolerate any unlawful protest/gathering or assembly that will jeopardise the peace of the state.

“Last year’s ‘ENDSARS protest still lingers in the minds of Nigerians, especially the Police and other security agencies, which caused pain, anguish, needless loss of lives and wanton destruction of public and private property.

“Therefore, the Commissioner of Police has given marching orders to the Area commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Tactical units to be at alert and nip in the bud any act capable of truncating the peace of the state”.

Opalola said the Commissioner of Police advised parents and guardians to warn their wards to be law abiding, and desist from such planned protest/gathering/assembly as the state Police Command would arrest and prosecute defaulters.

“The CP advised the good people of the state to go about their lawful daily activities, while the Command has taken necessary security measures to forestall any likely breakdown of law and order,” she said.
