The Governor of River State, Nyesom Wike has banned all form of protest throughout Rivers state.

In a statement on Monday through the state commissioner of Information, Paul Nsirim, he said, all proposed protests under #EndSars Campaign are hereby prohibited.

“Government took this decision because the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

“Therefore, there is no need for any form of protest against a Unit of the Police Force that no longer exists.” Wike said.

The Governor advised Parents and Guardians to ensure that their children or wards do not violate this order.

Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book.” he added.

The #Endsars protest across the nation over an alleged brutality and extra-judicial killings by the unit, has made the Federal government to bow to pressure which led to the disbandment of the unit on Sunday by IGP.
