Coalition of Human Right Activist has called on government to constitute a committee to oversee the implementation of the police Act twenty twenty, as a basis for urgent reforms in the sector.

Mrs Hassan who noted that the protesters are calling for better society for all, urged the government to look into their demands for better society.

EndSARS: Coalition Seeks Urgent Implementation Of Police Act Twenty-twenty “We reject in its entirety the move to draft in the military to quell the protests, even where there has been no violent conduct on the part of protesters.”

“The Military should remain in their barracks and at their duty posts, defending the territorial integrity of the country, and not deployed in a dangerous anti-people and anti-democratic operation to crush a people who are exercising their right to freedom of association, freedom of expression, and freedom of assembly.”

“It is important we state here that the commencement of the Exercise Crocodile Smile VI is ill timed and will exacerbate the distrust of citizens.”

“It is important to let the Nigerian authorities know that the entire world is watching its response to the legitimate demands of the youth.”

Also speaking at the occasion, a human right activist,Mr Jaye Gaskiya, urged the security agencies to be civil in the discharge of their duties.

“We are not spokespersons of the protest, because we need to also send a message to the young protesters on the street that we are not in any way seeking to take their space and we are not any way to pretend that we are leaders of the protest.”

Other stakeholders at the forum advised the Nigerian youths to desist from act detrimental to the development of the nation.
