Security operatives have barricaded the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos, where some residents had planned to stage a protest.
An armoured personnel carrier is stationed right in front of the park while armed officers have mounted strategic places around the park.

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