The Nigeria Police Force, has taken a swipe at former Senator Shehu Sani who had at the 2024 Democracy Day Dinner on June 12, 2024, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, claimed that some young people have been detained since the 2020 EndSARS protest.

Categorically denying the allegations, Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on behalf of the Inspector General of Police, affirmed that no individual is being unlawfully detained by the Nigeria Police Force or any other security agency in Nigeria due to the EndSARS protest.

He said; “All arrested individuals have been processed according to the law, and none remain unlawfully detained. In Lagos, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu pardoned approximately 100 suspects arrested by the Police during the protest.

“For emphasis, no one anywhere in Nigeria is under Police detention or being wrongly persecuted for participating in the EndSARS protest. The issues surrounding the protest have been debated, researched, and documented, and lessons have been learnt. We have forgiven ourselves and moved on.

“We urge the public to disregard this claim and remain assured of our commitment to upholding justice, the rule of law, and human rights. We encourage verifying information before making public statements to avoid harm and incitement”.
