Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi has commented on the #EndSARS protest which rocked the country in 2020.
Speaking in an interview with Punch, Adejobi who claimed that the original agitators lost grip, control and focus during the protest, also said that he’s not convinced that EndSARS was meant to reform the police because the police lost so many things to the crisis, including lives and property.
Well, I don’t like discussing #EndSARS for many reasons. However, it has become a history and reference point for many discussions today across the globe. I was involved in the crisis. It was not entirely a protest. I was the PPRO in Lagos State which was the epicentre of the #EndSARS protest then. It was terrible. The original agitators had some protests but they lost grip, control and focus. So, personally, I was not convinced that #EndSARS was meant to reform the police because the police lost so many things to the crisis, including lives and property. You cannot claim to speak for me and still kill me.
