#PoliceReform: We’ll defend ourselves against Pro-SARS Northern miscreants, Activist fumes
A front line human rights Activist and participant in the ongoing #EndSARS and #EndPoliceBrutality protest has stated that Nigerian peaceful youths will “defend themselves against further attacks by the Northern induced miscreants sponsored by some clueless Northern elements and some loyalists of the ruling party to disrupt peaceful protesters”.
Recall that well armed thugs invaded the peaceful protest venue at Berger Junction of the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, Abuja on October 14, 2020.
The thugs harrassed passer-by with charms. They machetted protesters and destroyed more than 10 vehicles while so many protesters sustained injuries.
It was also widely reported that some armed thugs disrupted #ENDSARS Protest in Lagos-Nigeria and its environs on a consistent attack.
The thugs invaded the protest ground with machetes, charms and sticks while chasing away demonstrators at the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.
The ongoing protest across the nation is part of the agitation to end #EndSARS #ReformthePolice and #EndPoliceBrutality in Nigeria known for brutality and gross abuse of human rights.
“Nigerians are tired of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led ruthless and incompetent government.
“The #EndSARS protest is constitutional, civil and utterly resolute. We will resist any further attacks by the Fulani murderous miscreants sponsored by some clueless Northern elements to maim and brutalise us for simply protesting and peacefully demanding to absolutely and sincerely end SARS, incessant police brutality and extortion.
“The Police IG and Senior Officers in the force are complicits of the police brutality and extortion in the country.
“They are complicits because they keep mum while continuously collecting financial returns from the rank and file officers cum various Divisional Police Officers who boldly delight in shooting defenceless Nigerians dead and extorting money from the people in the roads and streets even when they deceitfully told us that “bail is free”.
“Thousands of innocent and peaceful Nigerians are detained in the police and SARS cells till date while uncountable numbers have been extra judicially murdered and slaughtered in history.
“Nigeria must be restructured to tackle unbridled corruption, lopsidedness, nepotism, clannishness, reckless impunity, police brutality and mindless extortion which is deeply worst in the Buhari-led government”, Njoku, stated.
