Former Minister of Finance and Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has commended Nigerian youths protesting against police brutality, extrajudicial killings and extortion
In a statement published on her Twitter page on Sunday, she commended the youths for being courageous, and advised them to be united.
“I applaud the resourcefulness and courage of Nigerian youth in the #EndSARS. Powerful to let your voices be heard peacefully. Let’s join hands for a positive outcome through a One Nigeria approach,” she tweeted.
Thousands of Nigerian youths have been on the streets protesting in Lagos, Abuja and other cities to demand an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, or SARS, a police unit accused of extrajudicial killings and abuses.
The protests have continued as the #EndSARS campaigners demanded the prosecution of all officers named in cases of rights abuses.
