Contrary to the stern warning by Lagos State Police command against holding protest , Yoruba nation protesters on Saturday stormed the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos where the rally was scheduled to commence.
Apparently bowing to the reality, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu held a press briefing at the protest ground, saying, Nigerians have the right to peaceful protests.
Odumosu said the security operatives were deployed to the area to ensure that the protest was not hijacked by hoodlums.
PLATFORM TIMES observed that armed security operatives on Saturday morning took over the venue ahead of the rally slated for 10am today.
