Human rights lawyer and member of the Lagos judicial panel on complaints against SARS, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa says the shooting of #EndSars protesters at Lekki, has left him heartbroken.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, expressed on Facebook, his disenchantment with the shooting of the unarmed protesters by the military.
“It is unacceptable to open fire on armless and defenceless citizens. Reports of shooting by soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate is most barbaric and unacceptable. These protesters have been the most orderly, most organised and most peaceful so far.
“These are children holding nothing but the flags of their nation. What the security should have done was to go to the zones of violence and wanton destruction and stop the thugs and criminals, not these innocent children.
“Even though we identify with the government on the need to restore law and order, there are other means to do that without resorting to using live bullets on these future leaders.
“To think that the protest itself was against police brutality.
“I call on the protesters to comply with the curfew imposed in demonstration of their commitment to the rule of law and due process.
“I urge the security to cease further assault on the protesters. Government must identify all those responsible and bring them to justice.
“I’m heart broken,” he said.
