Being #EndSARS member, not exception – Lai Mohammed


Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said for the Federal Government that being an individual from #EndSARS fight isn’t a resistance from being researched or charged for any offense or penetrate of the laws.

The Minister of Information and Culture said this on Friday in Lagos at a gathering with Title Editors of Nigeria Newspapers.

He was reacting to an inquiry on the supposed capture of some #EndSARS dissidents and patrons, said no one is above examination or indictment.

“Being a member of #EndSARS protest does not grant you immunity if you have committed any crime against the land. The key thing is that you must be treated according to the laws.

Even those whose accounts were frozen, the Central Bank of Nigeria went to court to seek permission to freeze the accounts. I am also aware that some of them whose international passports were seized had been returned.

None can stop the government from investigating anybody, including #EndSARS protesters. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you must not take the laws into your hands.

You must follow the due process because where your rights end is where someone else’s rights start,” he said.

Lai said there was no clampdown on the protesters and their supporters, adding that government is following the due process in the investigations being carried out.
