Hoodlums Who Hijacked #EndSARS Protects Are Product of Government Policies -Falana
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria and a human right activist, Femi Falana has said that hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protest were product of the policies of the government.
Falana said this while reacting to the move by the federal government to clampdown on the promoters of the protest.
According to him, “During the #EndSARS protests, the federal government conceded the fundamental right of Nigerian youths to protest peacefully.
“The protests were generally peaceful. Unfortunately, the police did not provide security for the protesters as required by the law. Hence, hoodlums took over the protests.
“By the way, the hoodlums are products of the decadent and neo-liberal economic policy of the Federal Government. There is no nexus between the #EndSARS protesters and the hoodlums.
“It is unfortunate that the government is being misled as usual. They should go ahead and charge the #EndSARS protesters in a criminal court if there is any scintilla of evidence indicting them.
“We have travelled through this dangerous route before to the detriment of national development,” He said.
