End SARS: Buhari’s aide cautions policemen on actions against protesters
One of President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aides, Tolu Ogunlesi, has warned policemen about escalating brutality during the #EndSARS protests.
Ogunlesi was reacting to men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) throwing teargas canisters at peaceful protesters in Abuja on Friday.
The police teargassed the protesters in a bid to disperse them.
Some of the protesters alleged that the police officers dispersed them while fully armed.
However, Ogunlesi says the officers should be handing out face masks and water to the crowd.
He wrote: “Police that should be handing out face masks and bottled water to peaceful protesters.
“The response to peaceful protesters protesting police brutality is not to further police brutality.”
