Lagos police parade 49 suspects arrested at Yoruba Nation protest

The Lagos State Police Command Sunday paraded 49 suspects arrested at the ‘Yoruba nation’ protest.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Hakeem Odumosu, paraded them at the command headquarters.

The protesters had on Saturday staged a protest at the Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, Lagos. They were dispersed by security men.

The CP explained that the suspects were arrested for violating the ban that no rally or gathering should hold in Lagos State.

He said they would be transferred to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for investigation and prosecution.

He said: “The press briefing is on what happened yesterday during the Oodua Republic Mega Rally”.

“The Lagos state government and the police command kicked against any rally of any kind in the state due to the unfavourable intelligence gathered about the rally.

“We advised the demonstrators to steer clear of Lagos state due to the fact that it could not afford another loss that was incurred during the #EndSARS.

“Yesterday, some people came to foment trouble in the state during the rally and the command arrested 49 suspects during the rally.

“The suspects would be handed to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department, Panti, Yaba, for discreet investigation and prosecution.”
