Police Surround Afrika Shrine To Prevent EndSARS Meeting by xpmode(m): 1:41pm On Nov 17
Also yesterday, operatives of the Nigeria Police Force surrounded the vicinity of Afrika Shrine, where a meeting on #EndSARS protests was expected to hold.

It was learned that Seun, one of the sons of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, had earlier sent out flyers announcing a meeting on the lessons of #EndSARS protests.

Vanguard gathered that policemen were strategically placed on streets leading to Afrika Shrine , a popular spot in the Ikeja area of Lagos State.

Some policemen were also seen at the entrance of the venue of the botched meeting.

Many activists and #EndSARS campaigners had indicated interest to attend the meeting before the convener, Seun Anikulapo Kuti, said the meeting had been suspended.

Seun said in a series of tweets: “Yesterday, (Monday) the government called my eldest sister, Yeni Anikalpo Kuti, and threatened to close the shrine if I hold my event there tomorrow (yesterday) and also sent a letter to back it up.

“I respect my families’ decision not to hold the event as it is but I will still go ahead with all the other organisations to launch THE MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE tomorrow and start our political resistance to the tyranny of this oppressive regime.

“This is a meeting, just a meeting of organisations and they are basically banning the right of association. Why are they afraid of the people organising? What is democratic about this act? The last time we tried to launch the government quickly called curfew and this time they have used threat but you can’t stop the will of the people.”

Lagos State Police Command which had earlier warned that the meeting posed a security threat, had said in a letter addressed to Seun: “You are hereby warned to suspend such gathering as any infraction that may emerge from this gathering will be tagged a deliberate action to sabotage the transition and restoration of the peace in Lagos State by Lagos State government and the Nigeria Police Force.’’

Calm down when government has demonstrated over and over again that it is not sincere with its promise for positive reforms?

Those to be calming down here are the government.

This is shameful sha. People can't even exercise their fundamental right in a democracy for that matter.
It all started when people in their wisdom thought buhari was a changed man who could fix Nigeria.

They 're not doing the #endsars protest because they just wanna have fun, they 're just tired of suffering, being oppressed and etc..When you travel to other developed countries then you would understand how wicked and heartless these our leaders are and need to be shot on sight..These stupid leaders don't create jobs, and when the citizens create their own jobs for themselves these same Politicians extort them. No good roads, no electricity, ASUU is already on strike, no good education then why do we have Government? I'm not gonna ask you to go to Europe or America to see how things are done...Just come to South Africa here that is in the same Africa then you will start asking yourself if Nigeria is cursed....My brother let them protest because if we keeping on tolerating this evil Government trust me things will never change...Ordinary peaceful protest they 're killing the Youths

Bro they won't understand.... You can't use one stone and kill two or more birds, its always a step at a time... That is why the youth can never rule this nation... They let emotions take control of their minds...
Until they rule over their emotions, only than they are ready to take over

The biggest mistake this government will make is to attempt to drive the genuine agitators under.

There's a thin line between tyranny and attempting to prevent anarchy.

Since Buhari and his dullard government has choose to be an unfortunate people. Instead for them to commence on demand of the young Nigerians, they prefer running after hatespeeh and social media regulation. We will give them some beat to dance to.
