Lagos police finally agrees to let 2face Idibia's Feb 6th protest hold

The Lagos state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has taken back its decision to prevent the February 6th protest that is slated to hold at the National Stadium, Lagos.

After a meeting with the organizers of the rally, the Commissioner told newsmen he has agreed to provide security for the protest. Fatai Owoseni said:
“We had a meeting with the protesters and we explained to them why we advised against the protest. A pro-government group wants to protest that same

day and we don’t want a situation where there would be friction.
We also don’t want hooligans to hijack the process and injure the protesters. After explaining to them, they said they will go back and discuss with others. They said if they decide to go ahead, they won’t demonstrate but would assemble at a point and read their demands. 
That notwithstanding, we have resolved to provide security for them. It is our responsibility and we won’t shy away from it. We will ensure trouble makers do not hijack the process.”
