The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed a viral video that suggests that there is an ongoing #EndSARS protest in the state on Monday, December 7.

But, the Lagos police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi said this was not true.

According to Adejobi, the video being circulated was shot before the toll gate was set on fire, after the Lekki shooting incident of October 20, Daily Post reports.

In a tweet on Monday afternoon, Adejobi said, “The attention of the Lagos State police command has been drawn to this viral video that some youths staged a protest at Lekki tollgate today 7th Dec 2020. It’s not true.

This was a very old video before the tollgate was set ablaze. PPRO Lagos.”
