GOVERNOR Babajide Sanwo-Olu has asked the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu to investigate the alleged harassment of protesters by police at the weekend.
Some protesters, including popular comedian, Debo Adebayo better known as Mr. Macaroni, claimed that himself and others were molested by men of the Nigerian Police after being arrested for attempting to protest against the reopening of the Lekki tollgate.
Speaking on Monday, the Lagos State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso said that Sanwo-olu wanted the incident investigated in order to prosecute and punish any officer found culpable.
The commissioner described the incident as an embarrassment to the state government, adding that Lagos would not condone such abuse of power.
Omotosho was quick to remind all that Governor Sanwo-Olu physically backed the #EndSARS protest.
