End SARS: UN alarms by loss of lives and destruction of facilities – Amina Mohammed
The Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, on Monday said she was alarmed seeing the level of destruction of lives and properties during the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.
Mohammed, Nigeria’s former Minister of Environment, said this in an interview with State House correspondents after a meeting she had with the President, Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
She said the UN was alarmed by the loss of lives and destruction of facilities that were the aftermath of the protests.
“We did raise, while we were with Mr President, the issue around the recent challenges of EndSARS protest that happened in the country.
“It was of course one that the Secretary-General and we all were alarmed, and of course, support the country in trying to get back on track.
“Young people and their demands for social justice, governance are all legitimate ones and must be done peacefully. But we were all disturbed by the damage level, loss of lives and we continue to condole with those families who suffer those losses,” she added.
