The youths in Nigeria have been urged by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Lagos state chapter, to put an end to the ongoing #EndSARS protest against police brutality.
NYCN made the call in a statement issued on Friday, amid nationwide demonstration which is gaining momentum globally.
The group stated that with the scrapping of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS by the inspector-general of police, Mohammaed Adamu, youths must give room for further engagement and monitoring of government’s commitment to promises made.
“We, as the Youth vanguard in the State, must ensure that, we demand a better Nigeria from the government and not to sabotage other citizens effort to live peacefully.
“Therefore, let’s halt all protests and return to the drawing board to restrategise with regards to better monitoring and engagement to address the issue of future cases where the government reneges on their promises.
“We understand the associated and pending national issues such as: ASUU strike, increasing unemployment, and enduring insecurity are fuel to the lack of trust in the government. However, we must act with tact,” the statement read.
