Lagos EndSARS Report: PDP demands prosecution of killers, APC collaborators


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that report by the Lagos state EndSARS panel confirming the gruesome killings of innocent youths at the 
Lekki Tollgate during the 2020 EndSARS protest, strengthened the fact that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is running a murderous and oppressive regime that has no regard for life.

According to the opposition party, Nigerians can recall how security operatives attacked and massacred innocent youths and how the APC, its leaders and agents, in various agencies of APC-controlled government, vehemently denied the killings, tried to mop up evidence and provided official cover for the killers.

In a press release signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, the party notes that the report of the Lagos EndSARS panel, which confirms the massacre of Nigerian youths in Lekki, further portrays the APC and its government as bloody liars whose hands are stained with the blood of our innocent compatriots.

The press release further reads: “It is now clear that no matter how much the wicked strive in denial, the truth will always prevail. Therefore, the blood of our innocent youths killed by agents of the APC and its administration must not be shed in vain. Those responsible for these callous acts must be made to face justice.

“Of course, all those whose hands have become blood stained will never know peace,” the leading opposition party argues. 

It therefore invites Nigerians to stand for the slain compatriots by ensuring that those behind the massacre of the youths as well as their supporters in government have their days in the dock, adding that the nation must ensure that such individuals are brought to book for their act of wickedness to humanity.

Against the backdrop, the party insists that all those indicted by the panel should be arrested, prosecuted and dealt with in accordance with our laws.

The PDP again commiserated with the families of the slain young Nigerians, “who were cut in their prime for demanding for a just, equitable and secure nation governed by the rule of law.”
