From Umar Danladi Ado, Sokoto
The Federal Government has assured people of the nation that all the perpetrators of violence in the name of EndSARS will be invested and who ever involved prosecuted.
The Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Muhammadu Maigari Dingyadi stated this while briefing newsmen on the ongoing EndSARS protests and other insecurity issues across the country.
Dingyadi said the initial intention of the protesters was sincere one, but the protests were later hijacked by some egocentric and unpatriotic individuals in the country.
The minister stated: “The now famous EndSARS and other demands code named 5for5 have been acceded to by President Muhammadu Buhari for full implementation.
He also warned the sponsors and whoever is involved in the ongoing protest should understand that the nation is greater than all of us, adding that its unity and progress could not be compromised by anybody, particularly a democratic government being led by President Buhari.
He further stated that already investigation has commenced to assess causes, saying that search for the perpetrators had since commenced and who ever is involved would be brought to book.
Meanwhile, the minister has held a stakeholders’ meeting with Chief Imams and other Ulamas from across the state, where he extended the appreciation of President Buhari to them.
He appealed to the Ulamas to sustain the tempo of their prayers and sermons, adding that prayers were weapons to the myriad of formidable problems plaguing the country.
