Pastor Adeboye condemns ‘in strongest terms’ military crackdown on #EndSARS protesters

Pastor E. A. Adeboye

General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has condemned “in the strongest possible terms,” attacks by the Nigerian military on the unarmed, peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.

The mostly youthful protesters have been rallying against police brutality in the last 12 days and celebrities, including Pastor Adeboye have identified with their cause.

In a statement, Pastor Adeboye denounced the military crackdown on the protesters, noting that the Police failed to arrest weapon-bearing hoodlums that attacked them only for the military to crack down on them.

The leading cleric warned that condemnable actions such as the tragic Lekki Toll gate attack could drive the protesters underground with grave consequences.

He, therefore called “on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the
#EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.”

He also appealed to the protesters “to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack.”

Full text of the statement reads:

I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as #EndSARS protests.

I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the #LekkiTollGate, the Nigerian Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent #EndSARS protesters.

The condemnable actions of the military risks driving the agitations of the young people underground, thereby making the situation unmanageable.

I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the
#EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.

I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack.

May the peace of God come upon our nation, now more than ever in JESUS name (Amen)
