The federal government says it will not allow the #EndSARS protest plunge the nation 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, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed said on a programme on the Nigerian Television authority.
Protesters have been out on the streets for over a week, demanding an overhaul of the police, even though government said all there demands have been met.
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, he said.
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.”
