We owe #EndSARS protesters protection – Lagos Police


The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has vowed that the safety of the #EndSARS protesters is guaranteed from all forms of dangers.

Owohunwa gave this assurance while addressing journalists at the 3rd Year Memorial of the #EndSARS protest at Lekki Toll gate on Friday.

The CP stated, “It has been stable. We had one nor two groups that came around here for procession and they have been working within our understanding of how it should be. As a citizen you reserve your right to exercise your freedom and franchise, we respect it, we protect it.

“We do it in such a way that, in the cause of doing that, the groups members will not also be exposed to any form of danger. That is what we owe them and that is what have have done.”

Owohunwa further said, “But, then we also made it clear that for the overriding public interest, we will also not allow a situation where those groups conduct them in manner that will put the interest, security, the peace, around Lekki and environs and across the state into jeopardy.

“We also owe the state the responsibility to guarantee their safety. So we’re trying to strike a balance and that’s it so far so good.”
