Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has summoned on leaders of the #EndSARS protest to show their face so the government can have a good interaction with them.
This was stated on Monday while addressing the protesters.
The governor said the protesters has showed so much courage in making all their demands known, and his admonishing them to provide their leader for a better interaction with the government.
The governor said it would be difficult for governments to know who to interface with, in resolving some of the issues if there were no leaders, adding that opportunists could hijack the gains of the protests.
“We cannot even appoint people into the various bodies being set up to address your demands without being afraid that opportunists who have no credibility with you are hijacking it,” he said.
The governor warned that despite their grievances, they must resist the temptation of seeking an undemocratic change in leadership
Bello had earlier inaugurated 10 man Human Rights Special Intervention Group (HRSIG) to help respond to the legal needs of the victims as part of the step taken to mitigate against persistent violations of the rights of Residents in Kogi & the inability of the less privileged to access justice.
The members of the Committee were drawn from DSS, NBA, Civil Defence Corps, National Human Rights Commission, Ministry of Justice, Police the Committee Secretariat is with PDCRC Office.
