Leave Protesters Alone – CAN, Amnesty Warns FG
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has warned the authorities to leave the EndSARS Protesters alone as their fight is a good fight.
While commending the protesters for the efforts to make the nation better, the President of CAN, Dr Samson Ayokunle, noted that the body calls for immediate compensation of those victimized by the SARS men.
“We are not unaware of your sacrifices, time, money and other risks in your quest for a reformed police and an egalitarian society. CAN acknowledges and appreciates your patriotic agitation in a peaceful manner despite the pockets of attack against you, either by the police or some hired thugs to disrupt the exercise.” – Dr. Ayokunle said
“We condemn in strong terms every attempt being made to stop or disrupt the peaceful protest which is lawfully allowed and guaranteed by the 1999 constitution (as amended). We are monitoring the #EndSARS protests nationwide and we are praying that their unprecedented efforts to have a decent society will not be in vain.”- He noted.
“We call on the military and police to resist the temptation to intervene in a civil protest in order to avoid a harvest of deaths. We have had enough of mass burials without fighting a war in the recent past.” – he warned.
