President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide, Lauretta Onochie has again slammed #EndSARS protesters

Onochie during a post she shared on her Facebook page, stated that the protest is being organized by children who don't have any understanding of what the root issues are. She further shared a screenshot of Zahra Buhari’s Instastory post during which she condemned police brutality to back her stance on the protest. 

The presidential aide wrote; 


THERE’S an excellent DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

1. END POLICE BRUTALITY AND


2. END FSARS.

Thanks to Vanguard Online that captured the image she shared on her Instagram Story, we now know that Zahra Buhari Indimi lent her voice to what ALL NIGERIANS want, which is, END POLICE BRUTALITY. She posted a picture that says #EndPoliceBrutality. She said nothing more.

There’s an excellent difference between #EndPoliceBrutality and End FSARS. One is by Nigerians, the other is by Kids who don't have any understanding of what the root issues are.

WE ALL WANT THE BRUTALITY to stop.

For me, even parading alleged criminals on National TV and making them to confess, is a component of that brutality that must stop, especially when two or more years down the line, such people haven't been charged nor convicted.

We must separate the end SARS childishness from #EndPoliceBrutality. Ending Police Brutality comes with reforms. this is often why reforms are needed to reposition FSARS to serve it’s purposes more efficiently and more effectively to the pride of the nation.

The reforms aren't almost laying out the principles guiding FSARS. No, its about ENFORCEMENT. the general public must SEE it that their reports and complaints are taken seriously and acted upon, including reports about those that slap or kill police officers too.

 If we end FSARS and make something else, it'll metamorphose into another FSARS, even as we've today- still with some bad eggs.

It’s people that need to be held accountable.

There’s an urgent need for all Nigerians to look inwards.

When erring officers are seen to be held accountable and punished in line with the laws, public confidence will return. Citizens would embrace them. Thats how national institutions are STRENGTHENED. Nations strengthen their institutions. They don’t kill them.

We cannot end the use of water because someone drowned nor can we cut off a hand because it lost a finger nail.

Let’s come together to push for a positive reform that will and can #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY. #ReformFSARS

That’s where I stand.
