The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has alleged that ongoing protests to end the SARS tactically unit are being sponsored by Internet fraudsters aka yahoo boys reports Daily Post.
The group advised the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to not desist from arresting the lot of the protesters as they were hoodlums for hire sent to wreak havoc.
A policeman was said to have been killed by protesters in Delta State on Thursday while a police station was vandalised in Ogun State on Friday.
Meanwhile two protesters have reportedly been killed in Ekpoma by policemen as they’ve been seen destroying police properties.
This was contained in a statement made available to DAILY POST by NANS National Public Relations Officer, Comrade Adeyemi Azeez in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Saturday.
While conceding that the activities of the police force, not only that of SARS, should be reformed for optimal performance, Adeyemi warned that “we must be careful not to set the country on fire”.
“We are aware that some internet fraudsters, in a bid to continue perpetrating their criminal acts, are mobilising hoodlums to protest against the activities of SARS,” he stated.
“The police should not hesitate to arrest and prosecute anybody caught disturbing the peace of the public and causing violence all in the name of protest,” he stressed.
