"Warn your wards and proteges against being used by merchants of anarchy, Osifeso said.

Oyo Police Command, yesterday, warned people planning to organise #EndSARS commemorative protests in the state to shelve the idea.

A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Adewale Osifeso, which was made available to journalists in Ibadan, said parents, guardians and leaders that wield various degrees of influence in religious, educational and traditional capacities are passionately advised to warn their wards and proteges against being used by merchants of anarchy, as violators would be thoroughly sanctioned and prosecuted.

HOWEVER, a human rights activist and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has urged the police to exercise restraint and work with the #EndSARS protesters to achieve a peaceful and orderly protest.

Adegboruwa spoke in response to Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu’s threat to suppress the protests being planned for the commemoration of #EndSARS.

He urged the protesters to shun all acts of violence, disruption of business or hindrance of movement of persons in the course of the protests.
