#LekkiMassacre: Give justice to victims, Adeboye tells FG

By Oluwaseun Sonde

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has called on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate attacks launched by Nigerian soldiers at the Lekki TollGate, Lagos and other parts of the country, adding that justice must be given to all victims.

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

Pastor Adeboye said, “I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the Lekki TollGate, 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”.

He called on the Federal Government to engage the protesters, to reach a common agreement to end police brutality. “I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign and stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack”, he said.
