The Ministry of Interior has called on the EndSARS protesters to remain peaceful, embrace dialogue, screen their rank and file and flush out people with criminal intents who may disorder the protest.
The Ministry in a statement signed by Mohammed Mangana, the Director of Press and Public Relations, made the appeal following the attack on two Nigerian Correctional Service Custodial Centers in Benin City and Oko in Edo State by hoodlums during the EndSARS protest.
According to the Ministry “peaceful protest legitimate and guaranteed as a fundamental right of citizens, operating as individuals and groups.
Attacking a custodial center is a criminal act which detracts from the advertised objectives of the movement and capable of imputing impure motives to its drivers.
The Interior Ministry further stressed that the release of criminals is an unacceptable and intolerable threat to national and communal security.
