Arrested EndSARS Memorial Participants Released – Police
The Lagos State Police Command on Thursday said that participants of the EndSARS memorial arrested at Lekki tollgate have been released.
In an interview with Channels Television, Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin said the police only arrested a few troublemakers who were kept in their custody on the spot but were later released when normalcy returned.
“A few troublemakers were identified and apprehended and kept in our custody right there on the spot, but a few minutes later when normalcy returned, they were all released, so it was part of our efforts to ensure there is no breakdown of law and order,” the PPRO said.
He said that police were there to provide security and ensure that the procession went fine, and only reacted when some people tried to cause obstruction to the free flow of traffic.
