#OccupyLekkiTollGate: It’s Better To Have Protesters Than Bandits With AK-47 —Adamu Garba

#OccupyLekkiTollGate: It’s Better To Have Protesters Than Bandits With AK-47 —Adamu Garba (Updated: Saturday, 13th February 2021, 11:52 PM)


Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has urged the men of the Nigeria Police Force to release all protesters arrested on Saturday at the Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State.

Garba on his Twitter page on Saturday stated that it is better to have peaceful protesters than AK-47-wielding bandits.

He stressed that the arrested #OccupyLekki protesters have the right to seek justice for all victims of the October 20, 2020 incident which eyewitnesses claimed security forces opened fire on #EndSARS protesters.

He wrote:

“When will we ever learn in Nigeria? Is it not better for people to express themselves in a protest than hide behind any extreme motive to seek justice?

“I would rather have a peaceful protester than a bandit with AK 47

“If #EndSARS protesters promise to be peaceful, let them be.

“If for any reason, an iota of violence is detected from them, the authorities should quickly mobilize and disperse them.

“But as long as protesters claimed to be peaceful, we should give them their right to protest and protect them against possible hoodlums hijacking the protest.

“The more reasonably engaged in citizens right to action by the authorities, the better the chances of having them on the side of the Govt.

“The more distance the authorities portrayed, the more hoodlums take advantage and inflame their ambers for evil

“It’s all about empathy”
