Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan urges Nigerians to restrain from violent acts as they continue to ask for a better police force (now using #ENDSWAT).
The former president said this on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.
He said, though Nigerians may hold different views on national issues, however, they all desire good for the country.
Accordingly, he said: “No Nigerian blood needs to be spilled or life lost during a peaceful protest that seeks to advance our country.
“We may hold different views on national issues, but there is no doubt that most people desire the same thing for Nigeria: a place where we can all live out the full potential of our God-given abilities. I implore everyone to exercise restraint as we walk through these challenging times.”
Recalled, Broom News reported how #EndSARSNow protests continue on large scale across the country in the last one week. And, how the Inspector-General of police ban the SARS unit of the force on Sunday.
The ban of the tactical force, however, did not abate the growth in number of protesters. Rather, they continue to change demands on police reforms. Sequentially, their demands started with #EndSarsNow to #SarsMustEnd and to #ENDSWAT.
The #EndSARS started in 2016 by Segun Awosanya.
