POLICE JUSTIFY THE USE OF TEARGAS AGAINST REVOLUTIONNOW MOVEMENT IN LAGOS

By Godson Ikiebey-

An assistant commissioner of police, Tijani Fatai, has said that members of #RevolutionNow movement were dispersed from the National Stadium, Lagos, because they did not seek permission from the police before gathering.

The activists had converged on the stadium ahead of a nationwide protest.

Addressing journalists after members of the movement were dispersed, Fatai justified the use of teargas in dislodging the protesters.

When asked why the police fired teargas at them, Fatai responded: “Because it is an unlawful assembly”.
