The Chairman, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter, Lekan Biliamin-Oba, has condemned the attack on #EndSARS protesters by thugs.

Biliamin-Oba disclosed this during a press conference held on Friday.

The chairman described the actions of the thugs who have been reported to attacked protesters at the Secretariat bus stop on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, on Wednesday and Thursday as shameful.

He urged the officers of the Nigeria Police Force to protect the protesters while commending the efforts of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in setting up a panel to look into cases of police brutality in the state.

Biliamin-Oba said, “The NYCN have followed and joined in the agitations and solidarity of the Nigerian youths in demanding total overhauling of the Nigerian Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad as they have suddenly become life-wasters and legalised robbers, which is far from their constitutional duties of securing the lives and properties of the youths from criminal elements.

“However, on Wednesday and Thursday, October 15 and 16, thugs attacked and injured youths protesting peacefully at Alausa. We find this act shameful as it is a blatant violation of the basic human rights of the Nigerian youth.

“We strongly condemn this and implore security operatives to protect the citizens and not stand aloof.”
