The United Political Parties, CUPP, has condemned Killings in Lekki, Lagos State during the Endsars protest.
This is contained in a statement signed by the National Secretary of CUPP, Chief Peter Ameh in Abuja.
It describes unlawful killings of innocent Nigerians across the Country as Jungle justice.
The statement stresses that the youths have remained united in their collective resolve for a decent standard of living as well as their struggle for a well reformed Police Force.
“It is indeed of great concern that lives of innocent Nigerians could be so easily taken away without recourse to the law and due process”
The statement explains that the killings of innocent citizens as well as law enforcement agents and destruction of public and private property across the States of the federation does not in any way, define who we are as a people.
“These recent occurrences are a clear sign of urgent need for revisitation of the Nation’s structural architecture to make it viable and sustainable”
It therefore calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to take all necessary steps needed to reconnect with the Youths and feel the pulse of the Nigerian people.
The statement also urges all State Governors to be proactive and immediately champion security of lives and property of citizens within their respective States.
“Being the most populous black Nation in the world and the great giant of the African continent, we remain very optimistic that Nigeria will once again rise to occupy her rightful place amongst the comity of nations.
