Police dispersed Yoruba Nation Protesters In Lagos with teargas

The Police have dispersed Yoruba nation agitators who gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, with water cannon and teargas.

The Lagos state Police command had on Friday embarked on show of force across state to send signal against the planned rally.

Speaking at Ojota, the Lagos Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, said the aftermath of the End SARS protest necessitated the need to prevent any rally over fear of being hijacked by the hoodlums.

This was after some Yoruba nation agitators dared the security operatives by spreading banners and flyers to announce their arrival and presence.

Some of the agitators were seen getting dragged into an armoured tank by policemen.

Odumosu stated that the timing for the protest was not right.

He added that the protest is coming few months after the #EndSARS protests during which the state suffered monumental losses.
