Lekki is not a place for protest – Minister of Police Affairs

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – Mohammed Dingyadi, Minister of Police Affairs has said that the #Endsars protest did not get out of hand just because a well-equipped police force was on the ground who are ready to face the protesters.

In a statement, Dingyadi said “This is the kind of things that we want to take place in any situation that we find ourselves. Like what you saw in Lekki, this is how it is supposed to be, they were fully equipped, well-uniformed and they were ready for the #EndSARS protesters. That was why we were able to contain the situation.”

 Lekki was not a place for protest as there were “designated” protest grounds for “orderly” demonstrations.

“Lekki is not a place for protest, there are specific areas that are assigned or designated as areas for protests. We agreed that protests should be conducted when the need arises but we cannot be protesting everywhere at all times. We have to have specific locations where these protests are conducted and they have to be orderly, they have to be reasonable and they have to be with level of minimum sense of nationality so that we don’t just allow every protest to take place without no course,”
