Lagos Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has said the “EndSARS protesters have no agreed leadership”.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, the police commissioner stated that protesters not having leaders, gives room to miscreants, who according to him hijacked the EndSARS movement, last year.

He also said protesters ought to have a means of identification so as to avoid being mistook for miscreants.

“There should be means of identification. If they are organised, then we have a means of identification. They don’t have an agreed leadership. There must be a leader who should be held responsible.”
