“EndSARS Protest, Never Again” – FG

It should be recalled that the Lagos State Government set up a Judicial Panel to investigate the Killings at the EndSARS protest on October 20, 2020, at the Lekki toll gate, which has led to the locking up of the gate.

The Judicial Panel however revealed earlier this week that the toll gate could be reopened, and this had led to an outcry on social media.

This has led to the planning of another protest, which is to take place on Saturday, 13th of February, 2021.

In view of this, the Minister for Information Lai Mohammed has revealed that the Federal Government would not allow any form of destructive protest again. He revealed this at a press conference on Thursday.

 According to Lai Mohammed:

“The ”Occupy Lekki Toll Gate” flyers have been circulating online, with the proponents threatening that ”Lagos will burn” again.  Let me be clear: While peaceful protests are the constitutional rights of Nigerians, violent protests are not”. 

Stressing further, he said:

“At this time, the chances that any peaceful protest will be hijacked are very high. Based on the intelligence at the disposal of the Federal Government, some Nigerian activists have linked up with others outside Nigeria, including subversive elements, with a view to destabilizing the country. We cannot and must not allow this to happen”.

The Minister revealed that, “Never again will the Federal Government allow the kind of violence that was perpetrated across the country under the guise of the #EndSars last October”.

He made it known that the military will be on ground to enforce law and order against any destructive protest.
