FG Secretely Compiling List Of Active Supporters of #EndSARS Protest
In a bid to silence the #EndSARS protest, the Federal government has been accused of compiling a lists of Nigerian youths who are actively involved in the recent #EndSARS protest.
According to report IssuesNG gathered from a source, three official who has direct collaboration with the federal government as regard to the list said in separate interviews that the controversial list is currently handled by the Minister of Interior.
Although, our sources did not mention any plan by the federal government to clampdown on this individuals(#EndSARS promoters), there are clear indication that the Federal government would do so.
Recall that on November 1, one Ms. Modupe Chizoba Odele was prevented from traveling out of the country and she was one of the key strategists to the protest.
Again two sources at the State Security Service, SSS(our source withheld their names) said that the interior ministry, under Rauf Aregbesola, earlier requested if the secret police unit had a profile of all key supporters of the protests.
“We told the ministry that we have not started compiling a list of the protesters because we did not get a presidential directive to do so as of that time,” the official said. “But the ministry went on on its own to start collating a list for enforcement.”
Another SSS official attached to civil aviation said the list was yet to be formally circulated, but six people suspected of participating in #EndSARS were already prevented from traveling last week.
“I know six people have been prevented from travelling to Europe and Dubai because of the troubles they put the government through with their campaign against security workers,” the official said. “The immigration people are already doing their own work, but we have not received any list from the headquarters.” he added.
The two SSS officials and a senior interior ministry official who confirmed the compilation to our source sought anonymity to discuss it. One of them described the compilation as “a matter of federal emergency,” on Monday morning.
