Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported Femi Adesina, a senior media and publicity aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, has commended his principal's fatherly role in handling the EndSARS protest, saying thing would have degenerated into anarchy had he (Buhari) not exercised restraint and tolerance.

Speaking through his Thursday, November 12 article titled “We Have Not Many Fathers", Adesina attributed the relative calm being enjoyed after the protest to Buhari's patience.

The presidential aide noted that the country has “many tutors, many instructors, but not many fathers" and added that Buhari is one of the country's fathers.

Adesina said when the EndSARS protest was "prolonged and eventually hijacked and misdirected", the president was not angered but rather gave the security operatives the directives to deal with the issue with a prudent force.

Meanwhile, the government of the United Kingdom has finally responded to the petition by Nigerians seeking a commonwealth sanction on some political leaders during the EndSARS protest.
