Several reactions have continue to trail the unfortunate jail break that happened in Edo state today as Nigerian youths embarked on a peaceful protest calling the government to bring an end to police brutality in the country.
Nigerians from all walks of life have expressed displeasure over the actions of the infamous SARS unit of the police force. The notorious unit was accused of rape, extortion, intimidation and extra judicial execution of innocent civilians.
However, Reno Omokri, a former media aide to President Goodluck Jonathan in a statement said, it was not the #Endsars protesters that pulled the jail break in Benin city. He said the people that orchestrated the attack were government hired thugs.
He said, “#EndSARS protesters did NOT pull of the jail break in Benin, or burn the police stations. Those were thugs. For all we know, they could have been agent provocateurs.
“The government has used provocateurs in Lagos and Abuja. It may not be the last time. And General Buhari’s Defence Minister accusation that #EndSARS protesters are undermining National Security is proof of this.
“This is a government that releases or rehabilitates Boko Haram members, some of whom have been known to return to the group? Pot calling plate black. Hypocrites! This is a peaceful movement!”
