The Yoruba Appraisal Forum has postponed its `Anti Secession Agitations’ rally expected to hold at Gani Fawehinmi Park, Lagos State on Friday.

The organisers said the rally was postponed after police intervention and a need to curb COVID-19 spread.

The Commissioner of Police (CP) in Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Odumosun, in a statement after meeting with Animashaun on Thursday at the command’s headquarters, said that any rally or mass gathering in any part of the state would expose the participants and innocent residents to traffic problems, health hazards and avoidable security infractions.

He said, “I met with the CP on Thursday afternoon and the reasons he gave for us to postpone the really are ideal.

“The CP also asked me to sign an undertaking to call off the rally, walk to forestall gridlock, new wave of COVID-19, among others, which I did.

“As a law-abiding citizen, I realised that the reasons given by the CP are ideal.

“However, our sensitisation about the need for one Nigeria is not something we push under the carpet. The rally will eventually hold at a later date that we will decide.”
