Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has condemned the unlawful killing of peaceful protesters at Lekki toll gate.

The Herald on Tuesday reported that many peaceful protesters demonstrated civil disobedience when they stayed at protest ground despite curfew in Lagos state.

Military officers allegedly shot at the unarmed protesters at Lekki toll gate which resulted in the loss of many lives.

Reacting to the killings which many Nigerians have tagged a massacre, Pastor Adeboye expressed disappointment at the Nigeria Police Force and Nigerian Army who failed yet again in protecting the lives of peaceful protesters.

This was contained in a statement from the revered Clergyman.

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as #EndSARS protests.

“I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the #LekkiTollGate, the Nigerian Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent #EndSARS protesters.

“The condemnable actions of the military risks driving the agitations of the young people underground, thereby making the situation unmanageable.

“I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the
#EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.

“I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the Military any other form of excuse to attack.

“May the peace of God come upon our nation, now more than ever in JESUS name (Amen)”

E.A. Adeboye
