BREAKING: Buhari warns hoodlums hijacking #ENDSARS protests

Must read

The #ENDSARS protests across the nation have been hijacked and misdirected, President Muhammadu Buhari has declared.

In a nationwide speech on Thursday night, he warned those who have hijacked the protests, saying government would not tolerate violence of any form.

He said: “I must warn those who have hijacked and misdirected the initial, genuine and well – intended protest of some of our youths in parts of the country, against the excesses of some members of the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

“The choice to demonstrate peacefully is a fundamental right of citizens as enshrined in Section 40 of our Constitution and other enactments; but this right to protest also imposes on the demonstrators the responsibility to respect the rights of other citizens, and the necessity to operate within the law.”
