Falana: You Negotiate With Terrorists, Dialogue With EndSARS Protesters by Omooba77: 10:34pm On Oct 14
A human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has urged the Federal Government to dialogue with #EndSARS protesters and actualise their demands.

According to him, if the government is negotiating with terrorists and kidnappers, it should also negotiate with the protesters.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who spoke on Wednesday night during a television programme in Lagos, also asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to order his men to protect #EndSARS protesters from being attacked by armed thugs.


Thousands of youths across the country have in the last one week been protesting against the harassment and extrajudicial killings perpetrated mainly by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

The police authorities have since disbanded the unit and announced the Special Weapons and Tactics unit as its replacement.

However, the protests have continued with many demanding for more reforms.

Speaking on Wednesday night, Falana said, “I will like to call on the government to stop allowing armed thugs or hoodlums to attack protesters who have composed themselves peacefully, maturedly and patriotically.


“If everybody had recognised that these young men and women had played positive roles in drawing the attention of government and the authorities to the crisis in Nigeria, they should not be attacked by anybody. In fact, the law says protesters shall be protected by the police.

“The Police must protect protesters.

“The President has a duty today to reconstitute the Nigerian National Human Rights Commission.


“The Accountant-General of the Federation has a duty tomorrow to open an account that will warehouse the money that has been earmarked under the Police Trust Fund to fund the police.


“My advice to the President is to get all the agencies of government to carry out their statutory duties.

“The government must engage in dialogue with the leaders of the protesting group. After all, the government is negotiating with terrorists and kidnappers. So, why don’t you negotiate with patriots like the young men and women that are protesting all over the country.

“There has to be a full-fledged Inquiry that will support a Judicial Commission of Inquiry to sit in the open like the Oputa Panel and investigate the atrocities of all the extrajudicial killings by SARS agents.


“If the government can put all these in place and these can be done in three days, the young, men and women can now be persuaded to leave the streets.

“I have been speaking with some of them and they have been saying if they leave the streets, nothing will happen. So, let the government role out the resolves and actualise the policies.”

Sane Nigerians are not against the good reasons behind the protest but we're totally against the hidden agenda behind it. If you want to separate you should come out plain and let the world know. Stop using cunning ways to achieve your aim.

If you want to call someone a dwarf, call him a dwarf. Which one is one short man that just lost his political value.

Instead of dialogue see what is up ...


protests:

- attack them with lies /FAILED
- called them clouters /FAILED and ADDED premium petrol
- started prosars /FAILED
- poured hot water/FAILED
- tear gas /FAILED
- bribe influencers /FAILED and ADDED premium petrol
- bring cultists to destroy things in Yaba to show we need SARS /FAILED
- took thugs to Abuja to attack protesters /FAILED woefully
- hit them with SUV /FAILED
- block the Internet /WILL FAIL and add explosive gas


Government, go and look for this book "Communism rise: how Berlin and Russia tamed society smiley" - even if you understand the tactics and use it, I am confident you will still fail. All these mumu ideas you are given won't stop the protests.

don't blame those of us that are still protesting despite the disbandment of SARS because we have really suffered!The average Nigerian is naturally built to endure suffering so when you see him come out for a protest know you have really pushed him to the wall.
In the case of SARS it is an understatement to say they pushed Nigerian youths to the wall,they literally used us to break the wall.
SARS was created in 1992 that's like 28yrs of brutality.
In other saner climes SARS would have ended the very day they dare harass just one citizen.
We'll keep protesting until we start to see changes!!

Are the protesters willing to negotiate with government?

The protest is seriously uncoordinated without any well articulated demands. When Segalink and Davido attempted to engage the IGP on behalf of the movement, they were insulted and shouted down. Basically, the protesters don’t know what they want.

Sadly, People with silly agenda are already raising millions to keep the protesters in the street forever. If they refuse to stop the protest by weekend and engage government on how to meet their demands, I will support the use of the military to disrupt the protest.

According to him, if the government is negotiating with terrorists and kidnappers, it should also negotiate with the protesters.


And settle All the families of every one killed unlawfully (protesters, policemen, and bystanders) Money cannot bring back life, but can provide comfort.
