Nigerian chartered accountant, Oby Ezekwesili has condemned the blame of a prison breakout on protesters of the #EndSARs movement in Edo.
Some hours ago, thugs allegedly break into the prison facility in Benin, breaking out an unknown number of prisoners.
The former Minister of Education in reaction rubbished claims of #EndSARS protesters leading the jailbreak and further stressed the need for President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to protect the rights of protesters.
In a series of tweets, Dr. Oby wrote, “While young #EndSARS citizens point the country toward an innovative future that can compare to global standards, their government acts in opposite direction with their out-dated strong-arm tactics. What’s that game in Benin all about, @ProfOsinbajo @MBuhari? Please stop.
“I hope @NigeriaGov, Presidency @NGRPresident @MBuhari and his VP @ProfOsinbajo
are aware of the international mechanisms the world now has for handling state-sanctioned crimes.
“Step up now and protect the rights of the #EndSARS protesters nationwide. You are not leading now.
“Is it the same #EndSARS protesters we have all been watching all week, conducting their protests almost like a community renewal program by looking out for one another; that will suddenly go and break a prison in Benin? Please stop the expensive joke, @NGRPresident @MBuhari,” she added.
