Security operatives on Saturday surrounded the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos, where Nigerian youths had planned to stage the June 12 protest.

It was gathered that three Hilux Vehicles and two armoured tanks were spotted at the scene.

A further report had it that security operatives hindered three people from accessing the park.

At the scene of the protest was an armoured tank and five Hilux Vehicles patrolled the area.

The Lagos State Police Command had earlier stated it is unaware of any planned protests by any group/groups on June 12 Democracy Day.

It promised residents of the state of safety during the June 12 celebrations.

The spokesman of the command, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said this in a statement on Friday.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Hakeem Odumosu, called on the people of the state to stay away from the protest.

“The police and other security agencies have made necessary arrangements to maintain law and order across the state,” he said.
