Event

Several demonstrations relating to the #ENDSARS protest movement are scheduled to be held in Lagos on Monday, October 19. Reportedly, the ongoing protest at Lekki Toll Gate will continue through Monday. From 07:00 (local time), demonstrators plan to gather in Alimosho and block Ipaja road. Furthermore, a rally has been called for outside the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) at the 7/8 Bus Stop from 09:00. Further protests are likely throughout the day. 

Further protests are likely to occur in the near term and associated violence may occur in the vicinity of any demonstrations. Associated disruptions are to be anticipated. 

Context

A series of protests organized by the #ENDSARS social media campaign have been held across Nigeria over the past few months and have intensified in recent days, with demonstrations having often led to fatal clashes between protesters and security forces. Unrest has continued despite an announcement by President Muhammadu Buhari that SARS would be disbanded and replaced by a new agency called SWAT, a move which protesters have rejected.

Advice

Those in Lagos are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the vicinity of any demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
