More details in subsequent report…Also, SCOOPER reported earlier on Tuesday that Prof. Itse Sagay, President Buhari’s top aide said the #EndSARS protests look more like a smokescreen for revolution and coordinated efforts to distabilise the country.Sagay said his position is based off of the youths’ continuation of the demonstrations even after their yearnings were tended to by the President — with the disbanment of the notorious squad and a pledge of a hoslistic police reform that also involves the punishement of officers found guilty of corruption and brutality.The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) noted that the federal government is being left with no option than a forceful ban of the #EndSARS which he alleged has been hijacked by hoodlums and people with sinister motive to collapse the stability of the country.In an interview with the Daily Independent, Sagay said, “My observation is that hoodlums are already hijacking the protests. The IGP has already disbanded the SARS. So, it no longer exists officially as a unit. The youths refused to stop protesting, they said they wanted the President to issue an Executive Order dissolving it. Executive Orders are not used for that purpose”.”Executive Orders are lawmaking instruments to make laws, just like National Assembly will make a law, although this type of Executive Order is below that level. It wouldn’t have been an appropriate thing to do”.

“But it’s as if the President is listening, he now came and made this address in which he accepted everything the youths are asking for. He went on to even say that the squad people who are responsible for various harmful and illegal activities will be identified and dealt with. To me, that should be the end of the matter”.”I believe the youths should be satisfied at this stage. If the youths still come out tomorrow again, then it will look as if the whole demonstration has a hidden agenda for which EndSARS is being used as a cover. It will seem there is an agenda to disturb the stability of the country and engage in activities that may be along the line of #RevolutionNow which itself is the highest crime in our constitution”. “IN such a situation, the government will have no choice than to bring an end to it and nobody will be able to complain then”. “This is what they were doing in H0ngk0ng for nine months. They got all that they want in H0ngk0ng but they refused and continued protesting; they stopped all commercial activities; stopped flying in and out of H0ngk0ng and paralyzed all activities until the Ch1nese stepped in and were forced to pass the law, completely suspended their rights, and now they are complaining”. “So, our youths must know how far they should go. Since they have gotten more than they want, at this stage, everyone should quietly go back to their homes and not continue obstructing the highways, disturbing commercial activities in the state”.
