Anthony Adeyinka, an aide of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said Police in Ojota fired tear gas to disperse hoodlums, not June 12 activists.
He commended the police officers on how they managed the June 12 protest across the state.
“I was impressed with the way the police handled that situation. It was not the activists, it was the hoodlums that wanted to hijack that protest”, he said in a newspaper interview.
“The people were at Ojota peacefully. The activists were addressing themselves that what they want is a peaceful demonstration but the hoodlums, the miscreants as we all know them wanted to hijack the peaceful demonstration.
“But the police rose to that occasion and made sure the thing was put in order.”
Adeyinka added: “The youths in Lagos are ready to work in synergy with the state government.
“The last #EndSARS showed how hoodlums hijacked a peaceful protest but we give thanks to God that the youths are able to come together and work together with the governor and make sure there is peace in the state.”
