Today the 13th October 2020, Rivers youths stormed the streets of Port Harcourt, the state capital city massively to join the #EndSARS protest in defiance to Governor Nyesom Wike’s directive.
Their starting point was Pleasure Park on Aba Road, insisting the Governor had no right to ban a peaceful protests.
But from all indication, the Governor was 100% in support of the protests but purposely placed ban on it to avoid a bloody protest. Not too long ago, he was spotted addressing the protesters.
“It is not only ending SARS, every Nigerian should support the total reform of the Police. We shouldn’t make a mistake, If we #EndSars as they have done the same police people would be used to form another body. That is what I have always supported and called for”.
By the above statement, you don’t need a Prophet to tell you that the governor is in support of the EndSars movement. But you never can tell, maybe he succumbed to pressures from the youth.
