#EndSARS: Buhari keeps mum on Lekki massacre, tell youths to stop Protests

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, in a nationwide broadcast failed to speak on the Lekki shooting and the various victims killed, injured during the protests across the country.

Recall that the Nigerian soldiers on Tuesday shoot sporadically at some Protesters at the Lekki toll gate, leaving several injured while some were reported to be dead.

But, the President who refused to condemn the attack on the peaceful protesters by Military personnel in Lagos, only called on security operatives not to harm citizens while campaigning against police brutality.

“And I call on all Nigerians to go about their normal businesses, and enjoin security agencies to protect lives and properties of all law abiding citizens without doing harm to those they are meant to protect. Let me pay tribute to officers of the Nigeria Police Force who have tragically lost their lives in the line of duty.” he said.

He called on the youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions to the various problems of the country.

According to the president: “I therefore call on our youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions. Your voice has been heard loud and clear and we are responding.

“And I call on all Nigerians to go about their normal businesses and enjoin security agencies to protect lives and properties of all law-abiding citizens without doing harm to those they are meant to protect. Let me pay tribute to officers of the Nigeria Police Force who have tragically lost their lives in the line of duty.” he added.
