The Lagos State police command has embarked on a show of force to prove they are ever ready for the Yoruba agitators, Sunday Igboho and his cohort.
There have been tension in some part of the state over the attack on Sunday Igboho’s resident by Nigerian force as well as the Lagos state planned Yoruba Nation rally slated to hold on Saturday.
The groups further disclosed to the newsmen that the event will go on as planned.
According to findings, it shows that a cross-section of residents in South-West region are supporting the rally and providing some tactics to use.
However, the Nigeria government and Lagos state authorities believed that the rally will trigger violence in the area.
Government officials insist that they cannot go through another round of what happened during the ENDSARS protest that shook Nigeria.
Following this, the Nigeria police force has deployed hundreds of officers and assets including motorcycles, Armoured personnel carrier vehicles and heavy trucks.
According to Muyiwa Adejobi, the Public Relation Officer who spoke to news said the demonstration was “a warning signal to whoever or any group of persons planning to stage any procession or foment troubles in Lagos”.
Hakeem Odumosu, the state commissioner of police has on Thursday warned that anyone caught participating in the Yoruba Nation rally will have him or herself to be blamed.
In response to the latest development, two Yoruba breakaway proponents stressed that people will come out on Saturday.
“You only live once. I will go to Ojota tomorrow to add my voice to the calls for Nigeria to allow the Yoruba people leave,” one of them, a trader said in local dialect.
