Biafran protesters not welcome in Lagos - APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has warned that Biafran protesters are not welcomed in the centre of excellence, reports ITRealms.

The spokesman for Lagos APC, Mr. Joe Igbokwe gave this warning in a press statement made available to ITRealms on Tuesday, saying that  those planning to hold demonstration in Lagos under the aegis of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Describing such demonstration as nefarious, Igbokwe said the party states that with the heightened security challenges Lagos is facing, it will be foolhardy for any group to hide under the guise of protest to compromise the security of the state and be allowed such privilege.

Igbokwe also said, there is no way the state will sit idly by and allow politically sponsored hoodlums, masquerading as Pro-Biafran protesters or any group at all to compromise the security of the state where the state has invested hugely in recent times.

APC equally warned that the security agencies led by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police Mr Fatai Owoseni have vowed to deal ruthlessly with anybody or group found to be involved in such protests. 

“We hope the will of the Law Enforcement Agencies in Lagos will not be tested at a time like this,” Igbokwe said.

Stressing that as a party that governs Lagos State, APC would be derelict to watch a group of politically- sponsored hoodlums tamper with the tight security system that has been effortlessly put in place by the state government to combat increasing crime rates in the domain. 

“We cannot allow these hoodlums, sponsored by politicians that failed woefully in the last general election, to unleash mayhem on peace loving Lagosians so as to achieve dark political aims that run parallel to the interests of Lagosians,” Igbokwe said.

APC maintained that it is obvious that the sponsors of the planned protest want to throw the state into needless mayhem by their act but the state will be ready to mete out to them the appropriate antidotes for such folly.
