The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has prohibited every form of #EndSARS protest in the state.

According to him, all proposed protest are banned and violators would be severely punished.

In a statement released on Monday, the state Commissioner for Information, Paulinus Nsirim, stated that since the Special Anti Robbery Squad unit of the Nigerian police force has been disbanded, there is no longer need for further protest.

The statement reads,

The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned throughout the State.

Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSARS Campaign are hereby prohibited.

Government took this decision because the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Therefore, there is no need for any form of protest against a Unit of the Police Force that no longer exists.

Parents and Guardians are therefore advised to ensure that their children or wards do not violate this order.

Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book.
