Ex Nigerian vice president, Atiku Abubakar has joined the #EndSARS campaign on social media.
According to him, buying a laptop to earn a living shouldn’t attract harassment.
Atiku Abubakar, through Twitter, stated the Nigerian police should be protecting citizens, not harassing them.
I commend our young people for protesting these injustices peacefully online, and encourage the IG of @PoliceNG to take these complaints seriously. I also urge the National Assembly to look into these complaints, and address the human rights issues. Reforms are urgently needed.
Everyday, we encourage our young people to become entrepreneurs. Buying a laptop to earn a living shouldn’t attract harassment.
The arbitrary harassment of young Nigerians by Police (who should be protecting them) has no place in a democratic society. The #EndSARS protest shows Nigerian youth are upset and the matter needs urgent attention.
