Despite the ban, #EndSARS protesters remain at Alausa, Lekki toll gate
Some youths on Tuesday continued their #EndSARS protest at Alausa, Lagos State despite the curfew imposed on the state.
Apart from the curfew imposed by the Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Police Command also banned protests in the state.
A few hours after the curfew took effect, some youths continued to push for their demands peaceful.
Although, they deployed police officers and soldiers to the venue of the protest.
Some protesters guarded the vehicles of the police officers to prevent it from being attacked by hoodlums.
When the military personnel reached to the venue of the protest, the youths formed
a ‘guard of honor’ to welcome them and later rode on their vehicle as a form of solidarity.
Also, the protesters failed to vacate the Lekki toll gate.
Instead, they sat on the floor as a symbol they were not ready to vacate the venue of the protest.
Earlier, the Lagos State Police Command had banned protests in the state.
They contained this in a press statement by the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday.
The police ban came a few hours after the Lagos State Government imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state, starting from 4 pm.
