The Police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin has come out to explain why tear gas was shot at the #EndSARS memorial procession by men of the Nigerian Police Force, which took place at the Lekki toll-gate.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the procession had stopped and traffic was building at the toll-gate, so the police had to fire tear gas to disperse the crowd in order to relieve traffic at the spot.

He added that some troublemakers wanted to breach the peace, so the police had to swing into action.

His words, “Everything was going fine until they stopped and started laying the coffins on the ground and all. They were doing all these and traffic at the toll gate was building.”

“We needed to ensure that there was free flow of traffic in the area, because the agreement was that the procession would not stop, that was why we fired tear gas. After the crowd was dispersed, no single canister of tear gas was fired again.”

“Right now there is free flow of traffic in the area and calm has been restored.”

“Some trouble makers wanted to breech the peace in the area so they were picked up and locked up in the van. But after everything had calmed down and the protesters dispersed they were all released. I can confirm that we have no one in our custody at the toll-gate now.”
