#EndSARS: Adeboye Demands Probe Of Lekki Shooting

General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Wednesday condemned the killings of the #EndSARS protesters by Nigerian soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate, calling for an investigation of the incident.

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as #EndSARS protests,” the religious leader said in a statement he personally signed.

Adeboye said he was confounded that prior to the Tuesday’s incident, the Nigerian Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent #EndSARS protesters.

General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Wednesday condemned the killings of the #EndSARS protesters by Nigerian soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate, calling for an investigation of the incident.

He urged the Nigerian Government to ensure all victims of the incident get justice.

Part of the statement reads: “I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the #EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.

“I am also appealing to the youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack. May the peace of God come upon our nation, now more than ever in JESUS name (Amen).”
