A member of the Lagos State house of assembly, Hon. Temitope Adewale has disclosed that the Federal government might be forced to declare a state of Emergency or lockdown if the #EndSars protest continues in Nigeria.
According to the representative of Ifako-Ijaye state constituency on Instagram, the protesters should appreciate the efforts of the government to meet their demands. He however called for an end to the #EndSARS protests, warning that the government may be forced to declare a state of emergency or a lockdown if things continue to escalate. Adding that there may be counter-protesters by business owners and sponsored elements and this could lead to crisis, robbery and anarchy.
In his words; “The government would deploy its security and anti-riot forces to end the crisis they would say was caused by we youths and impose lockdown and or state of emergency in the land then the police reform we want to see would not happen as they will focus on you and I.
Part of the constitution that favours the government will be evoked to protect lives and properties as the primary responsibility of the government. Please let’s consolidate on our win by organising ourselves to participate in the reform process and end this protest.”
More than anything I am a youth and my name is Hon. Temitope Adewale, Member, Lagos State House of Assembly. God Bless us all.”
