A group, March4Nigeria on Monday, November 9, alleged that members of the #EndSARS campaign are mobilizing funds using cryptocurrency.

The national secretary of the March4Nigeria, Onimisi Bello, said funds for the exercise has already been "laundered online using cryptocurrencies."

Bello condemned an alleged move to incite Nigerians back into the streets, stating that it could jeopardize the FG's proposed police reform.

Also calling on parents to guide their children against being used as agents of destruction, Bello said law-abiding citizens must be protected by relevant security agencies at all costs.

FG took timely action against #EndSARS promoters

His words:

"They should impress on the young people that there are laws in Nigeria and the law is either on one’s side or against one, depending on what choices the individual makes.''

He further distanced the group from plans to destabilize governance and other activities across the country.

Bello said some dangerous elements that attacked Nigeria have only retained the #EndSARS label even when SARS has been terminated.

His words:

"It has no relationship or connection whatsoever with the original protest against police brutality, high handedness, abuse of human rights, and extra-judicial execution."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Citizens Against Fake Activists (CAFA) had totally supported actions by the federal government to prosecute promoters of the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.

The group also called on relevant agencies to resist every form of blackmail and intimidation attempts by fake activists across Nigeria and the world.

CCC said there is a planned attempt to destroy every evidence against, Alpha Beta case slated to be heard in the court.
