The United Nations (UN) has reacted to the destruction of its properties in Nigeria by hoodlums who hijacked the EndSARS protest in Calabar, Cross River state capital.

This was made known by Edward Kallon, UN's resident and humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, on his Twitter page on Sunday, October 25.

On behalf of the international organisation, Kallon decried the attack and noted that the miscreants' aim was to discredit the peaceful protest against police brutality.

Kallon tweeted:

“The United Nations in Nigeria strongly condemns attacks on its assets in Calabar by vandals who were out to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality.

"I call on youths to exercise restraints and engage in dialogue with the Government on their legitimate demands.”

Meanwhile, hoodlums in Osun who recently looted state properties in the name of EndSARS protests have been given not more than three days to return what they stole.

The threat was issued by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on Sunday, October 25, during his tour around the state to assess the extent of damage done by the miscreants.

Oyetola vowed that the thugs would be made to face the full weight of the law if they fail to do the needful upon the expiration of the grace period.
