The #ENDSARS Movement Has Brought Nothing But Joy To Me, Ooni Of Ife Says As He Narrates How SARS Operatives Nearly Killed His Daughter For Carrying A Laptop.

The Ooni of Ife.

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has come out with full force to support Nigerian youths in their quest for the liberation for their human and fundamental rights as they fight against the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) after recalling how he almost lost his daughter to their over-zealousness.

 

The first class traditional ruler told the horrifying incident on Monday after President Muhammadu Buhari publicly announced the disbandment of the FSARS, as according to him, his 25-year-old daughter almost died after fully-armed policeman ransacked her on the way to the airport. 

She was allegedly stopped, detained and questioned for carrying a laptop in her bag. 

According to the Ooni, “The #ENDSARS movement has brought nothing but joy to me. Finally, the youths are awake, with one voice and a common goal.

I understand your plight; my 25-year-old daughter had a nasty experience with SARS, almost losing her life. On her way to the airport, she was stopped and terribly ransacked and surrounded by fully armed plainclothes policemen in a bus, detained for close to 30mins of thorough questioning. Imagine a young female for that matter, all her belongings completely searched all because she was with a laptop on an official assignment from her office in Lagos. I can only imagine the countless ones that have lost their lives from such ordeals, may their souls rest in peace. 

”I assure you that this is the beginning of greater things to come in Nigeria. I implore you to demand more but plead with you to do so in a peaceful manner, as anything outside of that will cause unnecessary havoc for all. ”I have been informed of many innocent souls that were arrested and currently been detained, be rest assured that I am pursuing the matter and they will be set free.
