There is no justifiable excuse for the use of live ammunition by security agents on protesting youths at Lekki Toll Gate. This is a new low in the level of bad governance that we are witnessing in this country.

This action more than anything else establishes the lack of sincerity in the lip service government has paid to the #ENDSARS movement.

How can a civilised nation authorise the use of live ammunition on unarmed protesters? How can execution without arrest, trial or conviction be the penalty for breaching a curfew.

Government must exercise maximum restraint, no matter the level of the perceived provocation. This is completely unacceptable and an act of bad and irresponsible governance.
