The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, told the public at a meeting with the commissioners on Friday that there would be zero tolerance for any plans to repeat what happened on Oct. 20. He admonished all to be careful of listening to any group who plans to restage another #EndSARS protest in the country.
He said that the police force is ready and prepared to kick against anyone who would be involved in the protest. He stated that the constitution of Nigeria does not give chance for violent protest, therefore, if anyone plans to go against the law, then, he/she must be prepared to take what the police have for him/her.
Adamu said, “remember, even our constitution does not accept violent protests, so, those people that are planning to come up with another protest, if they’ve planned it to be a violent one, they should re-think, otherwise, we have prepared to face them.
“We will never allow this type of #EndSARS protests again. It was violent. Peaceful protest is allowed in our constitutions. When this process started peacefully, we provided security for them.”
He also added that the protest of Oct. 20 started peacefully and the police force secured the scenes of protest with full support until the protesters graduated to violence and started harming the police.
“We were moving with them to make sure they were not molested by any group of people and it was going on well until it turned violent.
“When it turned violent, they then attacked the people that were even giving them protection. So, we shall never allow any violent protest in this country again. When you talk of peaceful protests, yes, it is allowed but violent protests, never!”
However, he admonished all Nigerians to work hand-in-hand with them so as to discharge their responsibilites as police in the country.
“We’re to protect this country from hoodlums. We’re to protect this country from violence, and we want every Nigerian to work with us, to prevent what had happened as aftermath of the end of SARS in terms of destruction of public properties, loss of lives, businesses of individuals were crippled, corporate institutions were destroyed.”
