The former presidential aspirant urged the government to step up now and protect the rights of the EndSARS protesters nationwide.

She wrote:

“While young #EndSARS citizens point the country toward an innovative future that can compare to global standards, their government acts in opposite direction with their out-dated strong-arm tactics. What’s that game in Benin all about, @ProfOsinbajo @MBuhari? Please stop.

“I hope @NigeriaGov, Presidency @NGRPresident @MBuhari and his VP @ProfOsinbajo are aware of the international mechanisms the world now has for handling state-sanctioned crimes. Step up now and protect the rights of the #EndSARS protesters nationwide. You are not leading now.

“Is it the same #EndSARS protesters we have all been watching all week, conducting their protests almost like a community renewal program by looking out for one another; that will suddenly go and break a prison in Benin? Please stop the expensive joke.”
