#EndSARS: No Protester Is Above the Law’ – Lai Mohammed.

Lai Mohammed, The Minister of Information and Culture, on Friday, stated that being a member of the #EndSARS protest does not stop anyone from being investigated for violating the law.

Mohammed made this known while speaking in Lagos at a meeting with editors of newspapers.

The minister responding to a question on the arrests of #EndSARS protesters and sponsors said,”nobody is above investigation or prosecution”.

“Being a member of #EndSARS protest does not grant you immunity if you have committed any crime against the land. The key thing is that you must be treated according to the laws.”

“Even those whose accounts were frozen, the Central Bank of Nigeria went to court to seek permission to freeze the accounts. I am also aware that some of them whose international passports were seized had been returned.”

“None can stop the government from investigating anybody, including #EndSARS protesters. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you must not take the laws into your hands.”

“You must follow the due process because where your rights end is where someone else’s rights start.”

He further noted that the federal government is following the right process to investigate the protest and its sponsors.
