Nigerians across the country have come out in their numbers to protest on the state of the nation on Democracy day.
However, it has earlier been reported that policemen fired canisters and gunshots at the Gani Fawehinmi park in Ojota area of Lagos State.
In response to this, Anthony Adeyinka, the SSA on Sports to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commended operatives of the Lagos State Police Command over their handling of the June 12 protest in the state.
According to him, “I was impressed with the way the Police handled that situation, it was not the activists, it was the hoodlums that wanted to hijack that protest.”
He added that, “The people were at Ojota peacefully. The activists were addressing themselves that what they want is a peaceful demonstration but the hoodlums, the miscreants as we all know them wanted to hijack the peaceful demonstration but the police rose to that occasion and made sure the thing was put in order.”
