Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that nobody can stop the Nigerian government from prosecuting #EndSARS protesters, and that being a part of the protests does not guarantee anyone’s immunity if found guilty of a crime.
Lai Mohammed reportedly said this on Friday while speaking with newspaper editors in Lagos, noting that the most critical thing is that people will be treated according to the laws.
“Being a member of #EndSARS protest does not grant you immunity if you have committed any crime against the land. The critical thing is that you must be treated according to the laws. Even those whose accounts were frozen, the Central Bank of Nigeria went to court to seek permission to freeze the accounts.” Read also: #EndSARS: You All Are Seeing Double, No One Was Killed At Lekki Toll Gate – Gen Buratai
“I am also aware that some of them, whose international passports were seized had them returned. None can stop the government from investigating anybody, including #EndSARS protesters. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you must not take the laws into your own hands”, he said.Photos Credit: Getty
