Sam Adeyemi: Foremost cleric advises Nigerian youth to take control of future

The Senior Pastor of the Daystar Christian Center, Sam Adeyemi advised the youths of Nigeria to own the country; and continue to take steps to make the nation better.

Sam Adeyemi made this call on Wednesday, October 20, via a short statement on his Twitter handle; while encouraging the youths; urging them to believe their efforts will not be in vain.

He also told the youths that the elders won’t always be in charge of what happens in Nigeria; and they must be ready to define their own future.

He ended his statement with the #EndSARS hashtag, which is likewise an identification with the commemoration of the first year anniversary of the protests against police brutality.

Sam Adeyemi wrote: “Dear young Nigerian, we adults will not hold the stage forever. You own the future. Keep moving to fulfill the dream of a Nigeria and Africa that empower all without discrimination, creating political, economic, and cultural development. Your efforts will not be in vain.” #EndSARS

Meanwhile, the Lagos Police Command has disclosed why its men fired tear gas at #EndSARSMemorial protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on Wednesday.

The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, said he ordered his men to tear gas #EndSARS memorial protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on Wednesday.

Odumosu stated in a press conference on Wednesday, October 20, that the police fired tear gas; at the #EndSARS protesters to avoid a breakdown of law and order.

The police commissioner noted that he ordered his men to tear gas the #EndSARS protesters; because they went against the promise earlier made that the procession will start by 8 am and end by 10 am.

He said, “The protest was between 8 am and 10 am, anything, after 10 am, is a nuisance.

“I discussed with them and they said they will end the protest by 10 o’clock. Other people doing it now just causing a nuisance. Some with machetes, hammers, are they protesters or miscreants?

“The protesters are free; they have done their thing and left. Any other persons remaining are the miscreants, hoodlums that want to capitalize on that to attack innocent people and start robbing people. We will not allow that,’’ he added.
