Operatives of the Lagos Police Command, earlier today, fired shots at Yoruba Nation agitators who had gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos for a rally.
The agitators had spread banners and fliers to announce their arrival, in defiance of warnings from the police against conducting such activity.
Some of the agitators were seen being dragged into an armoured vehicle by policemen who had dispersed the crowd with gunshots and hot water.
The State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who spoke to journalists at the venue of the rally, said that there was a ban in place against any kind of protests in the State.
He further explained that the reason the police dispersed the protesters was that the time was not right for the protests, considering it is coming few months after the #EndSARS protests during which the State suffered monumental losses.
