Says peaceful protest is ‘speak up’ action
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has thrown his weight behind the #ENDSARS‘ protesting Nigerian youths for “speaking up” on their rights.
In a short message on his verified Twitter handle, the respected Clergyman, popularly called “Daddy GO” by many, wrote: “Our daughters will not be able to prophesy and young men will not see visions if we don’t keep them alive.”
“I support the youths in this peaceful protest as they “speak up” to #EndPoliceBrutality #EndSARS #ENDSWAT“, he said
Following accusations of inhumane treatment, intimidation, and harassment by personnel of the now-dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), most Nigerian youths have occupied streets across major cities in the country for days and still counting.
So far, the peaceful protests by the #ENDSARS campaigners have forced some positive actions from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
However, some major streets and roads nationwide are still playing hosts to aggrieved many youths who are demanding the government demonstrate more commitment to reforming the police for effective service delivery.
