Ooni of Ife
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi has said he is happy that Nigerian youths summoned courage to embark on #ENDSARS protests.
Reacting to the nationwide protest against police brutality, the traditional ruler disclosed that her 25-year-old daughter almost lost her life in the hands of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
He said, “The #ENDSARS movement has brought nothing but joy to me. Finally, the youths are awake, with one voice and a common goal.
“I understand your plight, my 25 year old daughter had a nasty experience with SARS, almost losing her life. 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. I can only imagine the countless ones that have lost their lives from such ordeals, may their souls rest in peace.

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.
