End SARS: NANS to IGP: Arrest protesters, says Yahoo-boys sponsoring hoodlums.
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on the Inspector General of Police,(IGP) Mohammed Adamu, to arrest those disturbing the peace of the society in the name of End SARS protest.
Reports has it that the End SARS protest, which started in Lagos a few days ago, has spread to other parts of Nigeria.
A policeman was said to have been killed by protesters in Delta State on Thursday while a police station was vandalised in Ogun State on Friday.
This was contained in a statement made available to DAILY POST by NANS National Public Relations Officer, Comrade Adeyemi Azeez in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Saturday.
According to Adeyemi, the protests had already been hijacked by hoodlums who may take advantage to wreak havoc on other law-abiding citizens of the country.
“We are aware that some internet fraudsters, in a bid to continue perpetrating their criminal acts, are mobilising hoodlums to protest against the activities of SARS,” he stated.
Speaking further, the students body recalled that the IGP had ordered that SARS and other tactical units should no longer conduct checks neither should they mount road blocks.
Adeyemi, however, expressed worries that the people behind these protests are not satisfied with this.
“The police should not hesitate to arrest and prosecute anybody caught disturbing the peace of the public and causing violence all in the name of protest,” he stressed.
