Governor Wike bans #EndSARS protest in Rivers, gives reasons......

Rivers state Governor , Nyesom Wike, has released an official statement, through his commissioner of Information, Paulinus Nsirim,  stating that all planned #EndSars protest is highly prohibited. According to the governor , the IGP called him to confirmed that the SARS department no longer exists, so in other words, it’s totally irrelevant to protest against what’s not in existence. 

Read full statement below: 

The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned through the state. Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSARS consign 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.

Parents and Guardians are therefore advised 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.
