Most residents have chosen to stay indoors, apparently to prevent being caught in any clash between security operatives and protesters.

 

 



Citing the rising insecurity and economic hardship, protesters had fixed June 12, Nigeria’s Democracy Day, for the protest.

 

But the police have repeatedly warned that protest would not be allowed in any part of the state.

 

Popularly known as Freedom Park, the Gani Fawehinmi Park was where the massive Occupy Nigeria protest held in 2012. It shook the government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan. Meanwhile, there is normalcy in most parts of Lagos State.
