Comments Off on #Lekki Shooting: “I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people—-Adeboye
The General overseer of the Redeemed Christain Church Of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye has condemned in strong terms the shooting of unarmed #ENDSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate by military personnel.
Condemning the Nigerian military and the police for the role they played in the massacre of peaceful protesters Pastor E.A Adeboye in a statement appealed to the youths to stay calm and avoid any act that would make them more exposed to police and military brutality.
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as #EndSARS protests.
“I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the #LekkiTollGate, the Nigeria Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent #EndSARS protesters.
“The condemnable actions of the military risks driving the agitations of the young people underground, thereby making the situation unmanageable.
“I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the #EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.
“I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the military any other form of excuse to attack”, the cleric wrote.
Adeboye prayed for the peace of the Nation even at this critical time.
