BREAKING: Police take over Afrika Shrine to prevent #EndSARS meeting
Movement in and out of the Afrika Shrine have been restricted by the police in order to prevent a meeting on #EndSARS from taking place there.
Recall that one of the sons of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Afro Beats maestro had earlier sent out flyers announcing a meeting on the lessons from #EndSARS protests.
Reacting to the development, the Lagos police command forwarded a letter to the Anikulapo family, demanding that the meeting must not hold at the shrine, a relaxation spot.
The snapshots of the letter had been shared on social media by one of the sons of the late Afro Beats maestro, 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 the Lagos State Government and the Nigeria Police Force,” the letter read.
On Tuesday, mobile policemen mounted strategic locations across the shrine while their vans were parked right in front of the relaxation spot.
