TRIXX NG reports that the Lagos police command has sent warnings to the followers of Peter Obi ahead of their planned rally set to hold at Lekki toll gate tomorrow.

In a statement sent to this medium, the command described the move as a way to disturb the fundamental human rights of other road users which won’t be condoled.

Read statement below

RALLY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED AT LEKKI TOLL GATE

It has become imperative to reemphasize that no form of rally whatsoever will be allowed at the Lekki Toll gate tomorrow, October 1, 2022.

This emphasis has become necessary to enlighten Nigerians that might be misled into converging on the toll gate.

A court of competent jurisdiction has ruled that no person is allowed to converge on the Lekki Toll gate for whatever reason.

In conformity with its mandate to protect life and property, the Lagos State Police Command under the leadership of CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc will leave no stone unturned in ensuring total compliance with the court order and an emplacement of adequate security in the state.

While the Command is not averse to the peoples’ right to freedom of assembly and association; and expression, the Command will equally live up to its mandate of ensuring that no person or group of persons is allowed to infringe on the fundamental human rights of others, especially the rights to freedom of movement and right to dignity of human persons, especially under the guise of rally or procession.

The warning therefore goes that anyone found flouting the court order or infringing on the rights of other Nigerians will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Meanwhile, CP Alabi enjoins all peace loving persons to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, reiterating that adequate security assets have been strategically deployed to ensure the safety and security of Nigerians at designated rally venues and across the state at large.
