Ready for Obidient Rally? Police Officers Take Positions in Iconic Lagos Locations

The Lagos state police command has mobilised officers of its Rapid Response Squad (RRS) to patrol around various locations in Lagos state including the Lekki Tollgate ahead of the Independence Day rally by supporters of Peter Obi. PM News reports that the operatives of the RRS and the taskforce have taken over the Lekki Tollgate to prevent the Obi supporters from converging at the location as ordered by a court.

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos had on Thursday, September 29, ordered the inspector general of police and the Lagos state commissioner of police to enforce the order. According to the court, the Obidient team are allowed to pass through the Tollgate but not converge at the said location.

Subsequently, in a tweet made on Friday, September 30, the Lagos State Police Command through its official Twitter handle said the Lagos CP has ordered the RSS commander CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi to lead his team and Lagos Taskforce on convoy patrol of the city.
