Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that he will not allow the repeat of #EndSars protest in the country. President Buhari disclosed this on Tuesday at a meeting of the National Security Council. President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he will not allow a repeat of the #EndSARS protests that rocked the country recently.
Recall that the #EndSARS demonstrations across the country turned violent on October 20, 2020 after Nigerian soldiers opened fire on peaceful protesters, who had converged at the Lekki Toll Gate for a peaceful demonstration, displaying Nigerian flag. After the massacre, across Lagos and other states in the country, vehicles, government buildings, hospitals, police stations, media houses and private properties were razed and looted by thugs and hoodlums. The incident triggered a global outrage, with calls for justice echoing from different parts of the world.
Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi, who spoke with journalists at the end of the meeting, said President Buhari assured Nigerians that he will carry all relevant stakeholders including the youth along in the process of maintaining peace and order in the country.
