#EndSARS: Presidency should Forcefully End Protests If Youths Continue without a leader– Prof. Itse Sagay

Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) on Thursday enjoined Nigerian youths to put an end to the #EndSARS protest in the country following the intervention of Presidency and the disbandment of the unit by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).

Sagay who said the protest is being hijacked by hoodlums added that having done what the youths requested, the federal government may be have no choice than to forcefully put and end to the protests if the youths continue.

Imagine presidency having successfully negotiated with the protesting youth last week and this week there demand change from 5 point to 12 point and yet we are not sure if this 12 we be honored by both party.

According to him, continuing the protests after all that has been done by the government may be as a ploy by the youths to destabilise the country using #EndSARS as a smokescreen.

He said “My observation is that hoodlums are already hijacking the protests. The IGP has already disbanded the SARS. So, it no longer exists officially as a unit. The youths refused to stop protesting, they said they wanted the President to issue an Executive Order dissolving it. Executive Orders are not used for that purpose”.
