No going back on #EndSARSMemorial rally, protesters reply Lagos police
19 October 2021Protesters have insisted that their planned rally in commemoration of the one year anniversary of #EndSARS in the country would hold on Wednesday.This is despite police warning that no protest is allowed to hold.They made this known in a statement by their legal representatives under the aegis of Radical Agenda Movement in the Nigerian Bar Association.
In the statement jointly signed by the group’s chairman, Adesina Ogunlana, and Secretary, Ayodele Ademoluyi, the protesters said, “The assertion in the Press Statement that the “attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a post being circulated on the social media insinuating that the Police in Lagos have agreed to allow street protests in commemoration of the one year #EndSARS anniversary on the 20th October, 2021” begs the question of even whether your Command or the entire Nigeria Police Force have the capacity in law to allow or disallow citizens of Lagos State and of Nigeria from exercising their right to peaceful protest, which is guaranteed under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria(1999 as amended).
“We assert further that the assertion that “on the contrary, the Police will ONLY ALLOW an indoor and virtual event in commemoration of the #EndSARS Anniversary and will provide adequate security at the venue(s) if known” flies in the face of the decision in MUHAMMADU BUHARI v INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE that Police Permit are not required for peaceful processions in exercise of fundamental right to peaceful assembly. headtopics.comRead more: The Punch Newspapers »
