Accepting #EndSARS Protesters Demands made them Bold and Violent - Buhari

Accepting #EndSARS Protesters Demands made them Bold and Violent - Buhari (Updated: Friday, 23rd October 2020, 10:30 PM)


President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, claimed that his regime’s decision to accept the demands by youths who protested against the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force emboldened them to become violent.

His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement, quoted the President as speaking during a virtual meeting he had with former Nigerian leaders.

The statement was titled, ‘How EndSARS protest was hijacked; misdirected, President Buhari tells former Heads of State.’

Adesina quoted the President as saying, “We accepted all the demands and proceeded immediately to scrap SARS and started the process of addressing the other demands.

“Unfortunately, the protesters refused to call off the protest and engage the government to address their grievances.

“Instead, they became emboldened and gradually turned violent.

The presidential aide further quoted Buhari as expressing concern that in the mayhem that ensued, many lives have been lost, a number of public and private properties completely destroyed or vandalised.

He said the President reiterated his pledge to Nigerians in his nationwide broadcast on Thursday that “We will continue to improve good governance through our democratic process including through sustained engagement.

We shall also continue to ensure that liberty and freedom, as well as the fundamental rights of all citizens are protected. Here, I want to also reaffirm our commitment to preserving the unity of this country.
