The Chairman , National Youth Council of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter, Lekan Biliamin - Oba , on Friday , condemned the attack on # EndSARS protesters by thugs.

Biliamin - Oba disclosed this during a press conference held in the Yaba area of the state .

He described the actions of the thugs who, on two separate occasions , attacked protesters at the Secretariat bus stop on the Lagos -Ibadan Expressway , on Wednesday and Thursday as shameful , adding that the rights of the protesting youths were violated .

While urging the officers of the Nigeria Police Force to protect the protesters , Biliamin - Oba commended the efforts of Governor Babajide Sanwo -Olu , in setting up a panel to look into cases of police brutality in the state .

Biliamin - Oba said , “ The NYCN have followed and joined in the agitations and solidarity of the Nigerian youths in demanding total overhauling of the Nigerian Police Special Anti - Robbery Squad as they have suddenly become life - wasters and legalised robbers, which is far from their constitutional duties of securing the lives and properties of the youths from criminal elements.

" However, on Wednesday and Thursday , October 15 and 16 , thugs attacked and injured youths protesting peacefully at Alausa. We find this act shameful as it is a blatant violation of the basic human rights of the Nigerian youth .

“ We strongly condemn this and implore security operatives to protect the citizens and not stand aloof . ”
