BREAKING: The Action Group on Free Civic Space commemorates #ENDSARS PROTESTS, tasks FG on issues

By Eyo Nsima

Barely one year after, the Action Group on Free Civic Space (AGFCS), has commemorated the brutal attacks launched on thousands of unarmed young protestors demonstrating against police brutality during the October 2020 #ENDSARS protests, particularly at the Lekki Tollgate Plaza in Lagos.

The event, which is ongoing in Lagos, Abuja, Abia, Enugu and Port Harcourt, is targeted at reviewing the unfortunate event as well as making inputs toward resolving outstanding issues.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.om, AGFCS, urges the government to, “divorce itself from the undemocratic and despotic inclination to target and oppress individuals, activists, dissenting voices, and civil society when they speak up, advocate for accountability from government or organize for lawful demonstrations.

“Fulfill its promises to citizens by bringing to book all erring security officers indicted at the various Judicial Commissions of Inquiry.

“Restore hope in victims of police brutality by fully implementing the recommendations for compensation submitted by all Panels of Inquiry set up in the country.

“Engage in dialogue with all aggrieved parties and all stakeholders to chart a new path to resolve the insecurity challenges and ethnic discontent that ails the country.

“Release all #ENDSARS protestors still unlawfully imprisoned for daring to challenge an oppressive status quo.

“Unconditionally lift the suspension of Twitter in Nigeria and commit to opening up space for citizens to participate in governance and engage in constructive dialogue.”
