Obafemi Hamzat Debunks Alleged Overnight Arrest Of EndSARS Protesters In Lagos by Abdulazeez99: 6:15am On Oct 17
Deputy Governor of Lagos State Obafemi Hamzat has debunked reports that policemen carried out illegal arrests on Thursday night across the state, Igbere TV reports.

Social media users woke up on Friday to the rumour that areas in Lagos such as Surulere and Ojuelegba witnessed such clampdown following protests against police brutality.

Mr Hamzat said on Friday that the reports were false, calling for caution among social media users.

“Fake news to cause panic during this period needs to be avoided at all costs. There have been reports of illegal arrests across Lagos that have turned out to be lies,” he tweeted.

“The @rrslagos767 team took action to verify these reports and we have not found any one that was true.

“If you have any verified claim of unlawful arrests last night in Lagos, please share with me and the state team will get involved to resolve. Let’s protect each other by not spreading fake news. Thank you.”

This protests has shown that we can still unte to achieve a collective goal.

Therefore I'll encourage we the Nigerian youths across the country to form our own political party.

Come 2023 we'll come out in masses and vote ourselves in all levels. President, Senate, house of reps...etc.

Let me see how those old fools in power would rig the elections when the youths are no longer on their side.

Sincerely...That was how a video went viral about SARS operatives arresting some people at Yaba area of Lagos State on Thursday night, only to be established as fake news. It was an old video. We should be very careful not to set this Nation on fire with some form of irresponsibility.

i was sounding like u before but now, i think i and many other will join and cause more nuisance. i never supported this protest before but with the way they are killing these protesters, we wont just sit and watch that. there are better ways of dispersing prtesters. use pepper water and disperse them and i bet u person wey pepper water enter eye, will not think of returning. do this daily without giving a Bleep and the crowd will reduce. killing any human because of protest is inhumane. i bet you u are going to see more nuisance soon. for now I MOVE WITH THEM

The govt is full of lies. That was how they said police will protect the protesters only for hoodlums to attack with state controlled vehicles and policemen stood by doing nothing. Where did the order come from for the policemen to do nothing? Protesters were injured in alausa and yet nothing was done. The reports might be fake but never believe the govt.

Edo state denied that their site was hacked yet Cbn site was hacked and taken down.
