The Lagos State Police Command has disclosed that the 158 protesters and members of the Otodo-Gbame community who were arrested for breaching public peace during their procession has since November 16, 2017 been released.
The protesters, who were released at about 7pm, had during their protest thrown caution into the wind by blocking major roads and breaching public peace, which resulted into serious panic by the members of the public.
It later took the intervention of men of the Lagos State Police Command to calm the situation, restoring peace and order.
The Police also disclosed that those involved have been made to take an undertaking to embrace and maintain peace in any part of Lagos they find themselves.
The command appealed to members of the public that henceforth when demonstrating or airing their grievances, they should do so in a peaceful manner and must not constitute themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of public peace as the command is committed to the safety of Lagosians generally.
