#EndSARS: Protests Have Been Hijacked By Criminals, Government Can No Longer Fold Its Arms – Lai Mohammed To Protesters

By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Federal Government has expressed its readiness to deploy maximum force against agitators for police reforms, saying that the ongoing protests have been hijacked by criminal elements and enemies of Nigeria who want to destroy the country.

This warning was given by Mr. Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture in a late-night news programme on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), in the wake of the purported violence that occurred in some parts of the country, where demonstrations against police brutality are ongoing.

Citing the attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State on Saturday, Mohammed said that it was obvious that the protests had been hijacked by hoodlums and people with sinister motives, adding that the original conveners of the #EndSARS protests were no longer in control of the movement.

Mohammed said that there is nowhere in the world where a responsible government would fold its arms and watch the country descend into anarchy.
