#ENDSARS: Rivers State Government ban protests in the state

The Rivers state government has banned all kinds of protests in the state.

According to a memo signed by the commissioner for communications  and informations; the planned protest in the state which was to hold on Tuesday, October 13, has been called  off.

The statement read;

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 #End SARS 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.
