Lagos Police Approves #EndSARS Memorial Protests


The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has reversed his earlier warning against any protest gathering or organization in commemoration of the first anniversary of the state's #EndSARS protest last year.

Odumosu, speaking to journalists on Saturday while monitoring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) state congress election in Lagos, described protests as a right that citizens have.

He went on to say that the state police command would be prepared to protect protesters.

"If you want to protest, that is your legal right," he said, "but you don't have to block the road because, by doing so, you are no longer protesting for a better life for people."

"However, what happens to pregnant women in an emergency, what happens to collapsed buildings, what happens to fire incidents when roads are closed?"

"Don't forget that this is Lagos, the country's economy, and it is also a working day, and you can imagine the lives of those who earn a living on a daily basis."

"Some people are unable to feed their families when protesters completely block the road."
