NEC tells #EndSARS organisers to reconsider planned protest

Organizers of the #EndSARS protests have been advised to reconsider their plan to stage any protest in commemoration of the one-year anniversary since the demonstrations were held in various parts of the country.
The National Economic Council (NEC), who made the call, said such a plan should be shelved considering the nation’s security situation.
Thousands of young Nigerians occupied strategic places in parts of the country in October last year, demanding the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) over alleged human rights violations.
While the protests held for several days, there was an alleged shooting by a team of security operatives who stormed the venue of the demonstration in the Lekki area of Lagos.
NEC stated that the government at the federal and state levels has already taken actions to address the grievances that led to the protests.
