Leader of Concerned Nigerians advocacy group, Deji Adeyanju, has revealed what the Government can do to put a halt to the restiveness of the Nigerian youths from protesting police brutality.
Adeyanju said Nigerians would stop protesting when they see seriousness on the part of the government to reform the Nigeria Police Force, NPF.
The activist stated this in response to the continued protest, despite the dissolution of SARS.
“The protest continued because there is a mistrust in the people about the government because this is the third time government is announcing the dissolution of SARS but there have been no political will to do it. People don’t trust the government, that is what you are witnessing.
“It is naivety to think that the protest is only about SARS, the protest is a combination of several issues and there is a general frustration in the country.
“The government should not lean the frustration on the people because they are human beings. In the last five years, the economy has been very bad, from the records you can see how high the unemployment rate is, and we have never had it this bad, you can see the hike in essential commodities, so it has been so crazy and not easy for people.”
