The Federal Capital Territory Security Committee has restricted #EndSARS fights in Abuja subsequent to seeing the nonconformists as blameworthy of neglecting to hold fast to the COVID-19 conventions.
The choice to boycott the dissent was taken at the board of trustees meeting held Thursday October 15 which was led by the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello and had in participation the Permanent Secretary, FCTA, Mr Olusade Adesola, tops of the different security organizations and military developments in the FCT, senior individuals from staff of the FCTA, delegates of strict and customary establishments just as Area Council executives.
An announcement delivered after the gathering peruses to some extent;
“While the committee recognizes the rights of citizens as regards freedom of association and movement as enshrined in the constitution, it has observed that the unruly conduct of the crowd and manner of demonstrations are in complete violation of the COVID-19 safety protocols which were put in place to safeguard the lives of citizens.
These violations endanger the lives of not just the demonstrators, but also other citizens going about their legitimate concerns.
For the avoidance of doubt, the COVID-19 guidelines regulating public gatherings recommend physical distancing, temperature checks, the use of facial coverings, amongst others.
Clearly, all these guidelines were flouted by the protesters.
Consequently, the committee directs that due to the dangers posed by COVID-19, all street demonstrations, protests and processions will not be allowed anywhere within the FCT.”
