EndSARS: Police warns prospective Protesters in Oyo State

The Oyo State Police Command, says it has discovered plans by some groups of individuals to embark on large scale violent protest in commemoration of the one year Anniversary of the #EndSARS saga that rocked the country last year October.

The Command, through the Spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, a Deputy Superintendent of Police appealed to individuals, groups and most importantly, those behind the sinister plans, to have a rethink.

Osifeso said the Command would not hesitate to use any legitimate means necessary within the ambit of the law to enforce sanity and prevent needless loss of lives and wanton destruction of private and public properties.
Aggressive patrols

According to him, the State’s Commissioner of Police, CP Ngozi Onadeko, has ”directed extensive visibility and aggressive patrols by Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers while adequate deployment of operational, intelligence and tactical assets would be strategically positioned across every nook and cranny of the state.”

Noting that decisive actions await those who violate the directive, the Command appealed to parents, guardians, community and religious leaders to warn their wards and proteges against being used by those it described as ‘merchants of anarchy.’

The statement reads; “The Oyo State Police Command, through intelligence availed to it, has unraveled clandestine plans by groups of misguided people to embark on large scale violent protests in parts of the State in commemoration of the one year anniversary of the unfortunate October ENDSARS saga.

“Consequent upon this, the Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Police Command, CP Ngozi Onadeko fdc, is appealing to individual(s), groups and most importantly architects of these sinister plans, to have a rethink as the Command would not hesitate to use any legitimate means necessary within the ambit of the law to enforce sanity and prevent needless loss of lives and wanton destruction of private and public properties, including critical government infrastructure, which could emanate from the proposed protests.

“Recall that the October 2020 EndSARS incident left a painful trail of sorrow, anguish and pains in the minds of Nigerians including security agencies.

“In furtherance to the above, the Commissioner of Police has directed extensive visibility and aggressive patrols by Area commanders and Divisional Police Officers while adequate deployment of operational, intelligence and tactical assets would be strategically positioned across every nook and cranny of the State to compliment and neutralise any threat or act(s) capable of truncating the relative calm enjoyed by the citizenry.

“Furthermore, parents, guardians and leaders that wield various degrees of influence in religious, educational and traditional capacities are passionately advised to warn their wards and proteges against being used by merchants of anarchy as violators would be thoroughly sanctioned and prosecuted.

“Lastly, the good people of the State are advised to go about their lawful daily activities as comprehensive security measures have been emplaced to forestall breakdown of law and order.”
