The Indigenous people of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja admonished #EndSARS protesters to vacate major roads in the capital city.
The protest began a week ago in major cities across Nigeria calling an end to police brutality and an end to impunity.
But they have widened the scope of their demands in a 23-point presented to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Presenting their letter to IG of Police, Muhammadu Adamu who was represented by DIG Leye Oyebade, they expressed displeasure and anger at the needless deaths that have been occasioned by the ongoing #EndSARS protests in the Territory.
Their letter was signed by Yusuf Yunusa, the Buhu Brukunu FCT, and addressed to the Office of the Inspector General of the Police (IGP).
They complained that countless farm products have spoilt due to activities of EndSars protests in the FCT.
The letter read, “We the members of the Indigenous People of The FCT wish to express our unreserved displeasure and anger at the blockages of our roads, the disruption of economic activity
“We write to express our offense, our disgust and our anger at the activities of these so called EndSARS protesters and their blockage of roads, tributaries that function for the economic activities of the FCT residents, not to mention the needless loss of lives.
“We do not want this, and we reject these continued protests, particularly in this form of blockages it is taking.
”Indeed, the laws that make these protests lawful, reserve in the exercise of all vested human rights the fact that where the right of one person ends, the right of another begins.”
Responding, DIG Oyebade who assured them that their grievances would be presented to his boss, urged them not to take laws into their hands.
