Governor of Rivers Nyesom Wike has banned the planned #EndSARS protest billed to be staged in Port Harcourt tomorrow.
In a statement Monday night, by Paulinus Nsirim, information commissioner,
Wike announced that his government has banned all forms of protests throughout the State.
“Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSars Campaign are hereby prohibited.
“Government took this decision because the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
“Therefore, there is no need for any form of protest against a Unit of the Police Force that no longer exists.
“Parents and Guardians are therefore advised to ensure that their children or wards do not violate this order.
“Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book”.
