By our reporter| Violent protest will never be allowed again in the country by the police force, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, warned on Friday.
Adamu who gave the warning at a meeting with commissioners of Police in Abuja, said the Force was ready to combat any group attempting to cause a breakdown of law and order.
“When #EndSARS protests started peacefully, we provided security for them. We were moving with them to make sure they were not molested by any group of people and it was going on well until it turned violent,” he said.
“When it turned violent, they then attacked the people that were even giving them protection. So, we shall never allow any violent protest in this country again.”
The IGP also reiterated his commitment to tackling the several security challenges in the country, calling for the cooperation of all Nigerians.
He also pledged that all the prisoners who took advantage of the recent #EndSARS protests to cause mayhem in parts of the country would be arrested.
