Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife has supported Nigerian youths in their fight against the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) as he recalled how he almost lost his daughter.
“The #ENDSARS movement has brought nothing but joy to me. Finally, the youths are awake, with one voice and a common goal.”
“I understand your plight, my 25-year-old daughter had a nasty experience with SARS, almost losing her life. On her way to the airport, she was stopped and terribly ransacked and surrounded by fully armed plainclothes policemen in a bus, detained for close to 30mins of thorough questioning.”
“Imagine a young female for that matter, all her belongings completely searched all because she was with a laptop on an official assignment from her office in Lagos. I can only imagine the countless ones that have lost their lives from such ordeals, may their souls rest in peace.”
“I assure you that this is the beginning of greater things to come in Nigeria. I implore you to demand more but plead with you to do so in a peaceful manner, as anything outside of that will cause unnecessary havoc for all.”
