The roles played by the military, police, and other security agencies during the #EndSARS protests have gotten a pass mark by the Federal Government.
This development was revealed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed during a televised press conference in Abuja on Thursday.
The minister expressed his worries over six soldiers and 37 policemen were killed during the “#EndSARS crisis”, claiming that soldiers killed no protester at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos on October 20.
Sources also disclosed that there were reports that some protesters were killed and injured, but the minister said the soldiers were professional.
Interestingly, he also said reports indicating that protesters were killed relied on unverified facts from social media.
Speaking further, the minister argued that soldiers and policemen “deserve commendation not condemnation” unless people would say “their lives do not matter”.
