ICYMI: Armed policemen take over Afrika Shrine to prevent #EndSARS meeting

The police in Lagos State are keeping mute as armed policemen take over the Afrika Shrine owned by the late Afrobeat singer, Femi Anikulapo Kuti.

The son of the late Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, was billed to host organizers of the #EndSARS protests at the Afrika Shrine on Tuesday.

Tribune Online reports that policemen barricaded some of the adjoining roads to the Afrika Shrine while armed policemen were also stationed in front of the popular hangout spot.

The police had two weeks ago banned any further protest, rally or procession in the state.

Meanwhile, efforts to get the reaction of the image-maker in charge of the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi failed as calls put through to his mobile phone were not answered.
