FG Won’t Allow Anarchy In Nigeria – Lai Mohammed says

The Federal Government has cautioned that it won’t permit the nation to be tossed into political agitation following the savagery that has followed the #EndSARS fights.

The Minister of Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Mohammed , expressed this on Saturday when he highlighted on a late-night Nigeria Television Authority news program , ” Weekend File “.

The program was entitled , “EndSARS Protest: The Way Forward”.

The priest said Saturday ‘s death endeavor on the Osun Governor , Adegboyega Oyetola , while tending to the nonconformists was a reasonable affirmation that the fights had been seized by criminals and individuals with ulterior plan.

He noticed that while the first conveners of the fights may have had good intentions , clearly they were no longer in charge of the activity.

“Peaceful protest is an integral part of democracy and that is why the Federal Government in the last 11 days has treated the protesters in a very civilised manner.

“But, if you look at what happened to the governor of Osun State , it has gone completely beyond peaceful protest against excesses and abuse of power by the police.

“There is nowhere in the world where a government will fold its arms and allow the country to descend into anarchy.

“We are no longer dealing with # EndSARS but a volatile situation that can lead to anarchy if the government does not take some very firm steps to protect the lives and livelihood of innocent Nigerians , ” he said.

The minister added that the protests have gone beyond being peaceful because lives have been lost and innocent Nigerians, including workers and students , are passing through harrowing experiences.

Specifically, he said because the protesters are blocking the roads and highway, workers are finding it difficult to get to their offices and back home while many Nigerians are stranded on the roads.

“We have nothing against peaceful protest but there are civilised ways of doing so.
“ This is by going to a venue where you are not going to disturb other Nigerians because where your own right stops , other persons’ right begins , ” he said.
