By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A former presidential candidate, and one-time Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Kingsley Moghalu, has carpeted the clampdown on some of the alleged organizers and sponsors of the recent #EndSARS protests.
Moghalu who expressed his views on the matter via twitter said, “The clampdown on #EndSARS protesters and supporters is completely WRONG and unacceptable!” Moghalu who contested the 2019 presidential election under the Young Progressive Party (YPP) noted.
“I urge the authorities to “reverse gear”. These actions raise questions about the good faith of the government and risk igniting even more resistance. Not wise!”
