Ahead of the Independence Day rally by Peter Obi’s supporters in Lagos, the State Police Command has stationed its Rapid Response Squad (RRS) at Lekki Tollgate.
Quest Times had earlier reported that a Federal High Court in Lagos had stopped Labour Party’s presidential candidate and his supporters from staging a rally at the tollgate.
The court ordered the Inspector General of Police and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police to enforce the order.
The court said Obi’s supporters must not stop at the tollgate but could march through it while the police are to ensure compliance.
Following this, the police commissioner, Abiodun Alabi ordered well-armed RRS and Taskforce operatives to patrol the metropolis in a show of force.
CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi is presently leading RRS team and Lagos Taskforce on convoy patrol of the city.
The Police Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said law-abiding citizens have been encouraged to go about their lawful businesses.
