A human rights group, Take It Back Movement, has begun a nationwide protest in Lagos against the economic hardship being experienced in the country.

This is despite the warning issued by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade.

The protest is coming preparatory to the organised labour’s billed to start on Tuesday.

The police spokesman in Lagos, Benjamin Hundeyin had, in a statement on Sunday, quoted the Commissioner of Police, Fayoade, as warning intending protesters against violence or acts that could infringe on the rights of others, such as obstruction of traffic and paralyzing the commercial activities in the state.

Fayoade assured residents of Lagos State that necessary security measures had been put in place to protect lives and property, with or without any protest.

But on Monday, the protesters took to the streets carrying placards despite the warning.

In Osogbo, Osun state capital, the protesters converged on Nelson Mandela Park, lamenting the effect of inflation and rising cost of living.

They called on the Federal government to act to prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

In Benin City, Edo State capital, the protesters marched from Kings Square to Akpakpava Road, wielding placards with inscriptions such as “End Economic Hardship”; “FG End the Hunger in Nigeria Now”; “We Are Tired of Hardship”; among others.

Labour is expected to kick off its own protest on Tuesday.
