According to Ooni, “when my daughter was on her way to the airport, she was stopped and terribly ransacked and surrounded by fully armed plain clothes policemen in a bus, detained for close to 30mins of thorough questioning.

“Imagine a young female for that matter, all her belongings completely searched all because she was with a laptop on an official assignment from her office in lagos. It was a nasty experience which she almost lost her life”, he said.Ooni could not imagine the countless Nigerian youths that have lost their lives from such ordeals, while prayed for their souls to rest in peace.

He assured Nigerian youths that this is the beginning of greater things to come in Nigeria. “I implore you to demand for more, but plead with you to do so in a peaceful manner, as anything outside of that will cause unnecessary havoc for all.

“I have been informed of many innocent souls that were arrested and currently been detained, be rest assured that I am pursuing the matter and they will be set free”, he said.

Ooni Ogunwusi called on men and women of the Nigerian police force to be rest assured that this movement is also for them. “We know you are humans and your reality is as a result of your environment.

“This movements demands better on your behalf, and is aimed at pushing the government to do better for you and elevate your standard of living. Do not persecute your advocates. God bless Nigerian youths and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, he said.
