Popular musician, TuFace Idibia who joined the call for protest by some concerned Nigerians over the state of the nation, had used his social media platforms to appeal to his supporters to join the movement.

But Owoseni, who had earlier stated that there was no official request from the protesters notifying security agencies of their plan, said Wednesday that intelligence report indicates that criminals might hijack the process.

According to the police chief, the command wasn’t ready for that kind of demonstration and as such would not allow it to hold.Tuface-Idibia

He said no matter how good an intention is, hoodlums would always find a way to harass, rob and attack innocent members of the public, who may wish to go about their Lawful duty.

Owoseni said:

 “Information reaching us revealed that some hoodlums are planning to hijack the peaceful protest. And as such, we won’t allow it to hold in Lagos. We know that Tuface do not have the capacity to contain such a crowd and we will not fold our hands and watch while things go out of hand.”

At a press conference held earlier in the week, Owoseni said:

“The Civil Society had said that they do not need police permission to carry out any peaceful protest, but they should also be aware that there might be those who share an opposing view. This set of persons may want to disrupt the peaceful demonstration and would want to attack demonstrators.

This is why we advise individuals or group of persons who may wish to embark on civil demonstration to inform the police so that adequate security arrangement would be provided.”

Who are sabotaging the protest. If police is sure of the security treat then let them provide security to the protesters after all the time table and the protest route was published.

Why didn't the police stop those protesting for Buhari? If we go out in large numbers, they can't contain us

Bro,The police have made it clear that they can't guarantee protection for protesters .Refering our memory past occurrence during mass protest ,it's not uncommon for touts and criminals to hide unde this guise for perpetuating criminal activities .To avoid criminal hijacked the peaceful protests as it planned to be ,Mr.Tiface will have to provide and guarantee security of those participants .Also he must ensure the general public that there wouldn't be disorderliness and any damages to public infrastructure will be strictly shouldered by him .If he can sign a memorandum to this effect then he's entitle to perform his civic right by organizing a peaceful protest against government policies.
