Withdraw Soldiers against #Endsars protest, Wole Soyinka Orders all Governors after the deployment of the Nigerian army into the streets against the #Endsars protesters.
The Professor in a message from his residence in Ogun state spoke on the reported killings of unarmed protesters at the lekki axis of Lagos yesterday by the army after the imposition of a 24hrs curfew in the state.
All #Endsars protest has been peaceful among various parts of the state against the Nigerian police and reform in the Nigerian police force.
He said thus like this;
To the affected governors all over the nation, there is one immediate step to take: demand the withdrawal of those soldiers. Convoke town hall meetings as a matter of urgency. 24-hour curfews are not the solution. Take over the security of your people with whatever resources you can rummage. Substitute community self-policing based on local councils, to curb hooligan infiltration and extortionist and destructive opportunism. We commiserate with the bereaved and urge state governments to compensate material losses, wherever.
“To commence any process of healing at all – dare one assume that this is the ultimate destination of desire?– the Army must apologise, not merely to the nation but to the global community – the facts are indisputable – you, the military, opened fire on unarmed civilians. There has to be structured restitution and assurance that such aberrations will not again be recorded. Then both governance and its security arms can commence a meaningful, lamentably overdue dialogue with society. Do not attempt to dictate — Dialogue!
He Also noted this during a message to the youth at the freedom park anniversary on Saturday 17th of October 2020.
He was delighted over the awakening of Nigerian youths towards seeing a better Nigeria commiserating that with the roadblocks and peaceful protest there is going to be a change.
