Obinwannem News #EndSARS: Nobody is above investigation, prosecution - Lai Mohammed

Nigeria’s Ministry of Information and Culture has disclosed its inclusiveness to ensuring proper investigation, and law execution regarding the #EndSARS protest(ers).

In a press conference held in Lagos Friday, the Minister Lai Mohammed said, with respect to the reported arrest of some #EndSARS protesters,there would be no resistance to probing any defaulter of the law, “including the protesters”.

Mohammed noted that, “being a member of #EndSARS protest does not grant you immunity if you have committed any crime against the land. The key thing is that you must be treated according to the laws.

“Even those whose accounts were frozen, the Central Bank of Nigeria went to court to seek permission to freeze the accounts. I am also aware that some of them whose international passports were seized had been returned.

“None can stop the government from investigating anybody, including #EndSARS protesters. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you must not take the laws into your hands.

“You must follow the due process because where your rights end is where someone else’s rights start,” he said.
