#EndSARS: Show maximum restraint, US tells Nigeria Security Services

 

The United States on Thursday asked the federal government to hold those responsible for the use of excessive force by the military authorities against unarmed demonstrators in Lekki, Lagos accountable.
The American government however asked the demonstrators to remain peaceful.

In a statement by the Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, the US government condemned the dastardly act.
Ponpeo said the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are essential human rights and core democratic principle.
Pompeo, therefore, admonished the security services to show maximum restraint and respect fundamental rights.
The statement titled, ‘Ongoing protests in Nigeria’, read in part, “We welcome an immediate investigation into any use of excessive force by members of the security forces. Those involved should be held to account in accordance with Nigerian law.
“The right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are essential human rights and core democratic principles.
“We call on the security services to show maximum restraint and respect fundamental rights and for demonstrators to remain peaceful. We extend our condolences to the victims of the violence and their families.”
