#ENDSARS protesters should be held responsible for there wrong actions – Garba Shehu

The presidency has stated that those involved in the #ENDSARS protest to vandalise
properties and killing of innocent citizens will be punished according to the law.

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to president Muhammed
Buhari, mentioned that he was impressed by the decision of frezzing bank accounts of
#EndSars protesters.
During a Sunday programme on Channels TV
Shehu said, “This country has only one president and has only one constitution. President
Muhammadu Buhari is responsible for his government. The buck stops on his table.
“Everyone witnessed the massive looting of public and private properties particularly in
Lagos, Calabar, Plateau, Taraba and some other states, even the FCT”.

“We are a country governed by law. There is a constitution —under section 33— that clearly
defines the rights of citizens to freely protest in a peaceful way but where a peaceful protest
turns into riot, violence and looting, there is a law and order duty to be performed.

“Now, the laws of the country must be allowed to decide, to rule on wrongdoing on the part
of anybody.

“I am not particular about any celebrity or promoter but this country has been harmed
enormously and people should be prepared to account for what they did.”
The government and police authorities have warned that they won't allow anymore street
protests.
