The coordinators of the proposed June 12 protest have been warned not to embark on any protest in Lagos State. The group known as ‘ Team Lagos’ said that they will not allow anyone or group to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere in Lagos State.
This was contained in a statement by the Director- General of the team, Zulu Authority, he urged indigenes and residents of Lagos State to shun the planned protest which is slated to kick start at Ojota on Saturday, June 12.
The group said that their primary objective is to secure lives and properties and promote peaceful coexistence irrespective of culture, party affiliation and tribe.
According to the group, people in Lagos suffered so much loss and casualties during the #EndSARS protest and such can not be allowed to repeat itself again.
Team Lagos said that they will not allow any protest in Lagos State that will probably be hijacked by hoodlums especially with the present security challenge in the country.
” Take your protest somewhere else and not Lagos state. Our Lagos must be great and secure, ” the group said.
Recall that the National Association of Nigerian Students has suspended their planned protest to further raise doubts over the possibility of the June 12 protest holding in the country.
It is obvious that many Nigerians are aware of the security threat that the planned June 12 Protest poses and it looks like a serious risk to take.
The security challenges in the country have made it almost impossible to have a clean and peaceful massive protest without it being hijacked.
Below are some reactions from Nigerians:
” #June12Protest protesters should be orderly in their activities. They should not disturb the peaceful and law- abiding activities of non- protesters. Any breach of the peace or civil disturbance will be dealt with in the way hoodlums understand. “
We can actually use this #Twitterban to our very own advantage. . . We can choose one country’ s VPN weekly to go there together, and trend interesting facts about us, promote our artists, promote our culture and in fact reintroduce ourselves to the world. . just thinking out loud🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️
Please, let the protest be peaceful and no blockage of roads, you have the right to protest others also have the right to move
