EndSARS Protest will not be tolerated this time - FG

Lai Mohammed passed this information in a press conference in Abuja and urged all who are part of this incitement to stop at once, as the government will not allow any further resort to violence in the name of EndSARS Protest.

While reassuring that peaceful protests are the constitutional rights of Nigerians, he clearly stated that violent protests are not.

He further said that there are great possibilities of having any peaceful protests hijacked at this time by hoodlums.

The minister alleged that based on the intelligence at the disposal of the Federal Government, there are ongoing partnership with some Nigerian activists and others outside the country who are bent on destabilizing the peace in the country.

“We cannot and must not allow this to happen. Any further resort to violence in the name of EndSARS will not be tolerated this time. ”

“The security agents are ready for any eventuality. A situation in which six soldiers and 37 policemen were murdered in cold blood by hoodlums will not repeat itself.

“The attack, looting and razing of 269 private and public property will not happen again. The killing of 57 civilians will not be re-enacted.

“We therefore strongly warn those who are planning to re-occupy Lekki Toll Gate on Saturday to desist. We know that many of those who have been loudest on social media in advertising the plan to reconvene in Lagos on Saturday are not even in Nigeria. They are elsewhere around the world fanning the embers of violence and inciting gullible people back home. No one should fall for their antics.

“No government anywhere will allow a repeat of the kind of destruction, killing and maiming wrought by the hijackers of EndSars protests last year. After all, only one policeman – (plus four others) – was killed in the invasion of the US Capitol in January, yet the FBI has continued
to hunt down and prosecute the perpetrators. No life is more important than the other.”
