The Governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike, has announced that all End SARS protests are banned in the state and that no one will be allowed to continue.

The South South Governor said that the decision was made due to the announcement of the inspector General of police declaring that the tactical unit was dissolved. 

He reasoned that there was therefore no more reason for the protests to continue hence the ban. Many have condemned the move as protests are constitutional rights of citizens of a democracy and should not be stopped Government. 

He tweeted:

The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned throughout the State.

Therefore, 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.

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.
