Ooni of Ife Praises Nigerian Youths for Protesting against SARS Brutality, Shares Daughter’s Encounter

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has applauded Nigerian youths for protesting against SARS brutality in the country.

In a series of tweets, the Ooni of Ife expressed joy in the movement, one which he called the awakening of the Nigerian youths, with one voice and a common goal.

He went on to narrate how his daughter was harassed by SARS officers while on her way to the airport on an official work trip.

In his words;

“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.I assure you that this is the beginning of greater things to come in Nigeria.

 “I implore you to demand for more, but plead with you to do so in a peaceful manner, as anything outside of that will cause unnecessary havoc for all. I have been informed of many innocent souls that were arrested and currently been detained, be rest assured that I am pursuing the matter and they will be set free.

“To the men and women of the Nigerian police force, be assured that this movement is also for you, we know you are humans also and your reality is as a result of your environment.

“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. God bless Nigerian youths and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY”
