We Will Protest Anyway -Tu Face, EiE Nigeria Tells Nigerian Police
Pop artist 2Baba and the February 5 march organizers, EiE, has said the protest slated for February 6 would go on as planned despite the Lagos State Police’s banning of the event.
According to SaharaReporters, the civil society organization disclosed they are backing the music icon who has helped organize the protest.
Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has recently disclosed police had received intelligence reports that criminals were planning to hijack the protest and unleash mayhem in the state, and had decided to ban any potential move (of such protest) in Lagos.
EiE and other civil society organizations have condemned the protest ban and the police’s decision to not provide security for the protesters.
“The protest will go on as planned,” EiE confirmed in a tweet.
