Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, a former Emir of Kano State, and the nationwide chief of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has been known as out on social media for remaining silent within the face of the continuing nationwide protests in opposition to police brutality.
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, reminded the previous Central Financial institution of Nigeria, CBN Governor how he protested in opposition to the final administration in 2014.
The protests calling for the scrapping of the Particular Anti-Theft Squad, SARS, of the police unit have intensified regardless of authorities’s announcement of the disbandment of the operation.
At present, captions resembling, finish unhealthy authorities in Nigeria; finish unhealthy governance; finish police brutality; Justice for Jimoh Isaiq; restructure Nigeria; reform the Nigeria Police, amongst others are trending on social media and in addition showing on placards on the streets to point that the protest has step by step shifted from its unique function.
However Reno Omokri puzzled why Sanusi and Tinubu have failed so as to add their voices to any of the trending situation. Sharing the previous Emir’s 2014 protest image on Twitter, the previous presidential aide wrote, “Pricey Sanusi Lamido, this was you in 2014.
“You had been far and wide with this hashtag. Your silence on #EndSARS in 2020 is slightly loud.
“Or don’t you’ve gotten a telephone anymore? Or is it a placard you can now not afford? What’s going on Sanusi? Why are you not talking?”
On Tinubu, he added, “Oga Tinubu, why are you silent about #EndSARS? Is it as a result of we’re blocking your cash from Lekki tollgate?
“Whether it is like that, we’ll transfer to AlphaBeta workplace and block that one too. Converse now!”
