- National Association of Nigerian Students has made its position on the #EndSARS protests clear
- According to the leadership of the group, it won't be a part of any protest that is faceless
- Sunday Asefon, the newly elected NANS president made this known on Monday, December 7
The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has reacted to the second round of #EndSARS protests in some parts of the country.
Premium Times reports that Sunday Asefon, the newly elected president of the association condemned the movement.
Asefon who stated this at a press conference on Monday, December 7, in Abuja, said the association does not recognise the movement aimed at ending police brutality because it does not have a leader.
The 45-year-old went on to note that under his leadership NANS would never be a part of a protest that is faceless.
Speaking further, Asefon explained that the protest would not solve the problem of police brutality because the controversial unit has been since been disbanded by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
This development is coming after the inspector general of police, warned that no form of EndSARS protest would be condoned again in the country.
Adamu issued this warning on Friday, November 27, in Abuja during a meeting with commissioners of police across the 36 states.
He said no protest under any guise would be allowed, saying "we have prepared to face them."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that President Muhammadu Buhari issued a strong warning that any act of hooliganism perpetrated in the guise of protests will be decisively dealt with.
This was revealed in a statement released by the presidency on Monday, December 7.
In a related development, armed police officers and soldiers were deployed to the ill-fated Lekki toll gate plaza following fears of another round of the EndSARS protests.
Motorists and pedestrians informed journalists that the security operatives were deployed to the place in the early hours of Monday, December 7.
However, the spokesman of the police command in Lagos state, Muyiwa Adejobi, is yet to give an official statement on the purpose of the presence of personnel at the place.
