Nigerian youths made a very brave move days ago to protest peacefully against injustice, police brutality, and police extortion.

At first it was only Nigerian youths, but after it went viral, and became known worldwide, old and young started joining the protest purposely started to EndSars, the rogue ex Anti-Robbery squad.

These protesters fighting spirit, and passion to create a peaceful society kept them going even after many innocents lost their life during the protest. These protesters got more luckier when some politicians started supporting the EndSars movement, and made it more easier for them to be heard by the higher ups.

This peaceful protest to fight against inhumane acts of rogue police officer is the first since many years, and many people have commended their bravery to create a better future.

However, it was surprising when the protesters revealed to have raised up to 73 million naira, and have disbursed 20 million naira. The question is what have they raised 73 million for when it was just supposed be a peaceful protest, and nothing more.

If Government were to grant them their requests earlier, and the protest ended sooner, what are they going to do with the remaining balance? They will probably spend it on nameless things. In this sense, CBN should seized the remaining balance, and distribute them to the poor to reduce poverty.

What do you think about this? Kindly share your thoughts below in the comments section. Also, don’t forget to like and share.
