Femi Fani-Kayode, a social commentator and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being behind the thugs attacking the #EndSARS protesters across the country.
Fani-Kayode said that the President’s next plan is to send the military against the peaceful protesters.
Fani-Kayode made the claim despite Buhari on Monday reaffirming that he recognizes the democratic rights of the Nigerian youths to peaceful protests.
Buhari had also urged the protesters to beware of anarchists who may hijack their gatherings for selfish motives.
In many cities where the protests have gained ground, thugs have been attacking and even killing the peaceful protesters but the protests have continued.
And the former Aviation Minister believes the President is involved in hiring thugs to counter the protests.
In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Fani-Kayode said, “Do you still love Buhari and do you still believe he respects the rights of those who oppose him and that protest against his Government?
“If you think this man is interested in #EndSARS or in stopping police brutality or anything else then you need to have your head examined.
“Right now he is still using thugs to disrupt the protests and attack people. Next he will use the military.”
