The statement by Paulinus Nsirim River State Commissioner for Information and Communications on October 12, 2020, directed security agency to arrests any seen protesting in the State.
The development is coming following the banning of #EndSARS Protest in the State by the State government.
According to the statement "The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned throughout the State.
Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSARS Campaign are hereby prohibited.
Government took this decision because the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Therefore, there is no need for any form of protest against a Unit of the Police Force that no longer exists.
Parents and Guardians are therefore advised to ensure that their children or wards do not violate this order.
Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book."NaijaBlog.ng
