Former BBNaija housemate Tacha has opted to praise the Nigerian in a new video for firing teargas to disperse protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate last night.
Recall that The candlelight procession for the late Mohbad took place yesterday, September 21st 2023, and was attended by a number of Nigerians, including celebrities such as Davido, Abu Abel, Zlatan Ibile, Kiekie, etc.
However, the candlelight procession for Mohbad did not end well as many people were hurt as police officers fired tear gas at the crowd later in the night.
Reacting to this, Police debunk the false narratives making the rounds that they killed and injured anyone as they asserted that the Lagos State Police Command had an agreement with the organizers of the candlelight procession that the procession was to end at 8 p.m.
In their words; “It is instructive to note that the Lagos State Police Command had an agreement with the organizers of the candle light procession that the procession was to end at 8pm latest and should terminate at Muri Okunola, Victoria Island. It was clearly stated for avoidance of doubt that in the interest of all Lagosians and considering the heavy use of the Lekki-Epe Expressway, the Lekki Toll Gate would be a no-go area.”
“This persuasion and appeal went on for hours, to which the police and organizers met defiance, both in words and action. At this point, all lanes in and out of Lekki had been totally blocked.
“Therefore, in fulfillment of our mandate to protect life and property, maintain law and order and prevent crimes, we adopted the least harmful method of crowd dispersal, following the failure of verbal persuasion – the use of teargas. Not a single live ammunition was fired!”
Tacha Akide, speaking about the occurrence at the Lekki Toll-Gate, praised the Lagos State Police Officers for using tear gas on individuals during the candlelight parade.
She added that the people's attention has been diverted from the hashtag justice for Mohbad as a result of their refusal to leave Lekki at 8 p.m.
Tacha observed that the participants attempted to turn it into a protest, much like Endsars with the narrative they circulated later that night at the Mohbad candlelight parade.
Captioning the video, Tacha wrote; “Kudos to the Nigerian police.”
