The President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and ECOWAS have issued statements on the violence that is currently taking place in Nigeria with the #EndSARS protest which took a violent turn when soldiers shot into crowds of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos Nigeria.
ECOWAS statement on the END SARS protests
“I join all well-meaning persons in calling for calm, and the use of dialogue in resolving the #EndSARS impasse in Nigeria.
I have spoken with President Buhari, who is committed to this end, and has begun the processes that will lead to reform.
Violence, be it on the part of the Police or protesters, cannot be the solution.
To the families who have lost their loved ones, I express my sincere condolences, and I wish the injured a speedy recovery.”
