President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Victims of the #EndSARS protests that they will get justice. While those who lost loved ones and properties in the mayhem that trailed the protests would also be served justice.
He urged Nigerians to maintain peace and order to avoid the dire consequences of vandalism on economy.
“Looting and vandalism will hurt trade and investment growth in our country – both large and small industries, as well as our hardworking people in the informal sectors of the economy,” the President said.
The justice system, he said, serves recompense to all who have killed, raped, robbed, committed arson and other forms of criminalities in the last few days.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu, the President Buhari explained why he had refrained from speaking on the Lekki Toll Gate incident because of the ongoing investigations.
According to him, he wanted all facts to have been assembled before making any comments.
He stressed the importance of the police and other security agencies to move everywhere to restore calm and normalcy as quickly as possible.
The President, however, expressed his full support for the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State government.
He expressed optimism that the panel, billed to begin sitting today, will assist the nation in giving justice to peaceful protesters who lost their lives, security operatives who were murdered and property owners, whose assets were vandalised and looted.
