The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has declared its support for the ENDSARS protest embarked by the Nigerian youths.
NUPENG declared its support on Saturday via a brief statement signed by its President, Comrade Williams Eniredonana Akporeha and General Secretary, Comrade Olawale Afolabi, calling for immediate reform of the police.
“NUPENG stands with Nigerian youths against Police brutality and calls for immediate and far-reaching Police reforms as our members are also victims of Police brutality and abuses through extortion, detention, harassment and intimidation nationwide.
“Meanwhile, no organ of our Union has ordered shutting down of fuel stations or oil installations.
“We sincerely empathize with all victims of police brutality including our members across the country and we peacefully join all well-meaning Nigerians to say POLICE BRUTALITY MUST STOP!
“Long live the Federal Republic Of Nigeria!” the statement read.
