LATEST: Police Deny Shutting APC Secretariat

The police in Lagos State have denied shutting down the Ikeja Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) following the release of the result of the last weekend primaries for chairmanship and councillorship aspirants in the state.

The denial was contained in a statement signed by the image maker in charge of the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi and made available to the Tribune Online.

The police in the state also averred that there was no report of any protest at the APC secretariat.

The police image maker said, “The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to the above-titled publication on the social media and in some Nigerian newspapers that the command has shut down the All Progressive Congress Party Secretariat along ACME Road, Ogba, Lagos State, as a result of the rumoured protest by some party members on Thursday 3rd June 2021.”

He added that ” The Command receives the report as a rude shock and unfounded as the Police have no power to shut down any political institution or its Secretariat except on the ground of total anarchy and violent crises endangering the security of lives and property therein.”

“Suffice to state that the presence of policemen at the APC party Secretariat along ACME Road Ogba, was a proactive measure being put in place by the command to fortify the Secretariat during and after the party primaries that were held on Saturday 29th May 2021; and the policemen are still on standby at the party secretariat.”

The police also added that ” it’s pertinent to state that there was no protest or crisis recorded at the Secretariat to warrant any shutdown or total closure of the APC party secretariat as wrongfully reported in some newspapers and the social media.”

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, therefore refutes the referred publication and appeals to the general public to disregard it as the Lagos State Police Command will not in any way act in divergence to the extant laws of the land and ethics of the Nigeria Police Force.
