Governor Ortom condemns Lekki attack on protesters
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom condemns in strong terms, the attack on EndSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.
The Governor describes as unfortunate and unacceptable,
the killing of innocent and unarmed young Nigerians who came out holding the National Flag and chanting the country’s Anthem while calling for positive changes.
He stresses that democracy guarantees the right of citizens to express themselves against unfavorable policies of government and states that security operatives owe the people the duty to ensure that such protests remain peaceful.
Governor Ortom says visiting the EndSARS protesters with violence is not a solution to the agitations, and urges the Federal Government to embrace dialogue and address the concerns of Nigerians as echoed by the protesting youths.
He calls for thorough investigation into the shooting that led to the death of some of the protesters, to fish out perpetrators of the heinous crime, for prosecution.
The Governor also advises the End SARS protesters to remain peaceful and not allow miscreants to hijack their noble march towards a better Nigeria.
