Governor Wike of Rivers State has banned physical protest in support of #Endsars. He made this known yesterday through his commissioner for information, Paulinus Nsirim.

Following the clash between Surulere and some protesters yesterday in Lagos, some Twitter users were tweeting that they would hold protests in several places in Portharcourt and said they would come out with their guns. Residents of the state began to Express fear that such protest may get bloody

In a press statement released by the Commissioner, the State Government made it clear that law enforcement would not take it lightly with any protesters. The statement reads:

"The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned 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.

Paulinus Nsirim,
Commissioner for Information"
