The Federal Government says the #EndSARS protest has been hijacked by hoodlums and people with ulterior motive to destabilise the country and bring down the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated this on Sunday when he featured on a Radio Nigeria programme monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
He said the Federal Government had met the demands of the group and implementing them.
Having met the demands, he said it was absurd that protesters were remaining on the streets causing mayhem,obstructing movements and inflicting pains on Nigerians.
“When you look at the demands of the #EndSARS and the decisionsof the Federal Government, it is clear that there is no single demand of the group that has not been met.
“Therefore, one will begin to ask if there is any ulterior motive because what we have witnessed in the last few days is that they have moved their demands from five to seven.
“As soon as the government approved one demand, another one will follow.
“From the five demands which were initially tabled and have been addressed, they are now including petrol price, national assembly salaries and allowances, electricity tariff, among others.
“Then you begin to ask yourself what exactly is the motive of the protests and who are those behind them,” he said.
