Says FG Trivialising Demands Of #EndSARS Protesters
By Daniel Dafe
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has faulted the directive by the Federal Government to State Governors to take charge of Tactical Commands of the Police.

The governor, who condemned the move in a tweet on Friday night, added that the Federal Government is trivialising the demands of #EndSARS protesters by this directive.

According to him, “State Governors cannot take charge of Tactical Commands because they cannot employ or discipline anyone who errs.”

He continued: “In Rivers State, we set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry that indicted SARS officers. Instead of the Police authorities punishing the indicted officers, they shielded them and even promoted one to the rank of an Assistant Inspector General.

“Now the Federal Government wants us to set up another Commission of Inquiry when the report of the last one we set up was not implemented.”
