The Lagos State Police Command has warned the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his supporters not to hold any rally at the Lekki Tollgate on Saturday.

Obi’s supporters had planned to hold a rally for their candidate at the Lekki Tollgate on Independence Day, but a Federal High Court in Lagos had stopped them from doing so.

The court ordered the Inspector General of Police and the Lagos Commissioner of Police to ensure that the order is enforced.

However, a statement issued by the Command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin on Friday, said it had become imperative to re-emphasise that no form of rally whatsoever would be allowed at the Lekki Toll gate on Saturday, 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,”
he said.

Hundeyin stated that while the Command is not averse to the people’s right to freedom of assembly and association; and expression, the Command would 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,”
he said.

If the OBIDIENTS are prevented from holding rally in Lekki today Tinubu should then forget about campaigning in Lagos too. It's a proven fact. Lagos does not belong to this IMPOSTER. He will be chased out of Lagos this time around.
