The Lagos State Police Command has banned protests in the state .
This was contained in a press statement by the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday .
The police ban is coming a few hours after the Lagos State Government imposed a 24 -hour curfew on the state .
Before the declaration of curfew , at least two police stations were burnt in Lagos State by hoodlums .
The statement read in part, “ In a statement by the spokesman for the command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi , the police said no protests, gatherings or procession under any guise was allowed anymore in the state .
“ Due to the new development of violent attacks on police officers and men and formations including innocent Nigerians in Lagos State , and the 24 – hour curfew imposed by the Lagos State Government with effect from 4 pm today October 20 ; the Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform the public that henceforth no protest or gathering or possession, under whatever guise, is permitted within Lagos State .
“ In light of the above , all security agencies have deployed adequate personnel to take charge and enforce the curfew across the state .
