Tacha Hails Police For Firing Tear Gas At People During MohBad's Candlelight

Even though the Lagos State Police command has been dragged for the development at the mohbad candlelight procession, Tacha, in the latest video, decided to hail them for the job well done.

The candlelight procession for the late mohbad was held yesterday, September 21st, 2023, and it was graced by several Nigerians, including celebrities like davido, Abu Abel, Zlatan Ibile, and Kiekie, among others.

However, the justice for mohbad during the candlelight procession did not end well, as many got injured after police officers fired tear gas at the people.

Reacting to this, Police debunked 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!”

Speaking personally on the event at the Lekki Toll-Gate, Tacha showers encomium on the Lagos State Police Officers for firing tear gas at people during the candlelight procession.

She noted that the people had been distracted from the hashtag justice for mohbad following their refusal to leave Lekki at 8 p.m.

Tacha noted that the people tried to turn it into a protest just like Endsars with the narrative they spread later in the night at the mohbad candlelight procession.
