The Lagos State Government on Monday warned #EndSARS protesters in the state to shun violence as they continue in their protests across the state.
The Government described the events going across the state as unpleasant following the degeneration of the anti-SARS protests.
Some policemen have been injured in attacks on RRS vehicles on Herbert Macaulay and Alapere; ordinary citizens have had their lives disrupted in many ways, a statement by the government said.
The statement which was signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso on Monday, said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Administration abhors violence in any form and warns all those behind these disturbing incidents to stop them as the government will not allow any breakdown of law and order.
Governor Sanwo-Olu is doing everything possible to ensure that this crisis stops as soon as possible. He urges Lagosians not to panic but to pray for peace, which the State desires, following the unfinished battle against COVID-19.
We urge all parents to ensure that their children do not become ready tools in the hands of criminals who may want to take advantage of the protests to perpetrate evil. All law-abiding Lagosians must ensure that criminals do not hijack the protests by our good-intentioned youths and make life difficult for our people.
It is the duty of all good citizens to ensure that nothing is done to aggravate this situation.
