Nigerians have taken to the banned popular micro-blogging platform to divulge their remarks following the recent interview of President Muhammadu Buhari on Arise TV.
In October 2020, thousands of Nigerians took to the street to stage an #EndSARS protest calling on the government to put an end to police brutality.
During that period lots of people came out to share heartbreaking stories of how operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) had allegedly killed their family members, tortured them, and even extorted them.
The protest had gone on for days until the Lekki massacre happened where innocent protesters were shot by men wearing army uniforms.
However, speaking on the #EndSARS protest in an interview with AriseTV on Thursday morning, President Muhammadu Buhari said the protest was aimed at removing him from office.
The president also blamed the protests on the dwindling inflow of foreign direct investment to the country.
The president insisted that those who participated in the protests, have made Nigeria unattractive to investors.
He stated this in response to a question on how he can improve foreign direct investment (FDI) to Nigeria.
“This question was answered last year when there was the #EndSARS protest last year. You remember the young people that wanted to march here and remove me?
“Tell the young people to behave themselves and make the country safe, then we can attract real investors to the country,” he said.
As sighted by Aynaijang Aproko, Nigerians are demanding to know the motive behind the bloodshed during the EndSars protest by the government once the first Nigerian citizen could admit that the protest was organized to remove him from power.
