EndSARS Protests Hijacked To Destabilize Buhari’s Govt - Lai Mohammed by WorriorPlus: 4:00pm On Oct 18
The Federal Government says the #EndSARS protests have been hijacked by hoodlums and people with ulterior motive to destabilise the country and bring down the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated this on Sunday when he featured on a Radio Nigeria programme monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja. He said the Federal Government had met the demands of the group and implementing them.

Having met the demands, he said it was absurd that protesters were remaining on the streets causing mayhem,obstructing movements and inflicting pains on Nigerians.

“When you look at the demands of the #EndSARS and the decisionsof the Federal Government, it is clear that there is no single demand of the group that has not been met.

“Therefore, one will begin to ask if there is any ulterior motive because what we have witnessed in the last few days is that they have moved their demands from five to seven.

“As soon as the government approved one demand, another one will follow. “From the five demands which were initially tabled andhave been addressed, they are now including petrol price, national assembly salaries and allowances, electricity tariff, among others.

“Then you begin to ask yourself what exactly is the motive of the protests and who are those behind them,” he said.

According to the minister, it is more nauseating that the protest has gone violent, claiming lives and causing injuries as well as destruction to property.

He said Saturday’s attempt on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State’s life who came out to identify with the protesters and address them was a clear indication that the protest had been hijacked.

Mohammed said the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello, was equally turned back on the road by the protesters in Abuja. “Peaceful protest is synonymous with democratic tenets and to that extent we see the EndSARS protest as the manifestation of how far our democracy has developed

” Regrettably, the protest has been hijacked by hoodlums and by people with ulterior motives bent at destabilising the country.

“As of today, many people in many parts of the country simply cannot go out because people are being intimidated and roads have been blocked.

“There was a report of a pregnant woman that died inside the ambulance simply because she could not get to the hospital because of the protesters.

“This cannot be allowed to continue because where your right stops another person’s rights begin.

“While government will continue to engage, no responsible government will fold its arms and allow the state to be thrown into anarchy,” he said.

Shut up ogbeni
Buhari has already destabilized Nigeria with insecurity, poverty, universities on strike, and shambolic living standards. You just want an end to this so you can continue your corrupt perpetrations.

We're coming for you all

I did not expect anything meaningful from him in the first place but this will not deter our fight for a new Nigeria.
