The well known Nigerian Scholar Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi recently spoke to BBC Hausa Service which asked him on his view about the EndSARS protest, and he said:
The protests are a threat to peace in Nigeria, which has been plagued by Boko Haram, banditry and kidnappings. It has been more than two weeks that Nigerians – mostly youths are protesting against the SARS anti-robbery police force.
The government disbanded the SARS to meet the demands of the protesters, but now the protests have turned violent in Nigeria. Lagos, Abia, Ekiti, Plateau, Imo and Osun states have imposed 24-hour curfew. But the move in Lagos has sparked unrest.
People have been posting videos on social media showing soldiers opening fire on protesters in Lekki. Although the Nigerian military denied it. Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi says fire is not put out by fire – water is used to put out fire.
“We call on the government to reconcile with the protesters; peace talks are not weakness,” said Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi. He said there is the need for the government to take care of the rights of its citizens and meet their needs.
