EndSARS PROTESTS: Protesters to be released soon in Lagos

. CP, Lagos State orders

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu has ordered the immediate release of End SARS protesters.

Consequently, Our Correspondent gathered at the suspects, numbering about35, who were detained at Area J police command, Elemoro, Ibeju Lekki would be released soon.

Prior to the release order, Rinu Oduala, #EndSars campaigner and former youth representative on the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing alleged shooting of protesters by soldiers at the Lekki toll gate, had called on President Muhammadu Buhari, and others to release them.

Commenting via her Twitter handle, She had said: “They are not letting lawyers see the arrested protesters. The Police said they have direct orders from the Lagos State Governor to arrest protesters & known frontliners of the #EndSARS protests & will soon move them to Ikeja. Jide SanwoOlu, are these forces beyond your control?

“They have started transferring protesters from Adeniji Police Station to Ikeja State Command without letting their lawyers see them. CP Odumosu, you dance to the tune of your masters, forgetting that you were appointed to serve the people. “You forget one day, you will leave the office and return back to being an ordinary citizen. Your House of Representatives, chairmen, councilors, senators are all refusing to pick calls to get protesters released.

“They are all turning a blind eye to the infringement on fundamental human rights. I just hope Lagosians will remember. We forget too soon. Is this happening right now?! My God! This is brutality and torture right in front of our eyes!

“Nothing must happen to Mr. Macaroni. The Police will arrest them until they get tired! Under Buhari’s democracy, we beg for our rights to be recognized. We get treated as slaves and criminals just for demanding our rights.”

She also added: “The Nigerian Ministry of Justice has nothing to say about the ongoing injustice ?! Mudashiru Obasa, we elected you to speak for the people. You have nothing to say? Femi Gbajabiamila, you have nothing to say? CP Odumosu says he doesn’t know where arrested protesters are being held.”
