The #EndPoliceBrutalityInNigeria Protests Are No Longer Controlled – Lai Mohammed



The Federal Government has come out to say that it will not allow Nigeria to be thrown into anarchy after the violence that has trailed the #EndSARS protests.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed revealed this recently when he featured on a late-night Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) news programme, “Weekend File.”

According to him, the recent assassination attempt on the Osun Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola was a clear confirmation that the protests have been hijacked by hoodlums and people with ulterior motives.

He added the those who originally started the protests might have meant well for the nation, but it is clear that everything is no longer under control.

His words, “Peaceful protest is an integral part of democracy and that is why the Federal Government in the last 11 days has treated the protesters in a very civilised manner.

“But, if you look at what happened to the governor of Osun state, it has gone completely beyond peaceful protest against excesses and abuse of power by the police.

“There is no where in the world where a government will folds its arms and allow the country to descend into anarchy.

“We are no longer dealing with #EndSARS but a volatile situation that can lead to anarchy if government does not take some very firm steps to protect the lives and livelihood of innocent Nigerians.”

“We have nothing against peaceful protest but there are civilised ways of doing so.

“This is by going to a venue where you are not going to disturb other Nigerians because where your own right stops, other persons’ right begins.”
