“The governor said what he said, it is within my constitutional right to protest. We are simply asking for police reform and justice for victims of police brutality,” Ms Okechukwu told Channels Television.
Governor Nysom Wike had earlier on Monday declared in a statement that all proposed protests under #EndSARS campaign are prohibited because the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped SARS.
Wike said that there is no need for any form of protest against a unit of the police force that no longer exists.
