The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has condemned the massacre of unarmed Nigerians protesting against police brutality by Nigerian soldiers in Lagos.

In a statement issued by Prof. Ishaq Akintola, its Director, MURIC encouraged the security operatives to use non-lethal tools to disperse peaceful protesters.

“Nigerian youth have demonstrated the ability to articulate their grievances,” the statement read.

“They showed ingenuity in the coordination of the welfare of fellow protesters thereby lending credence to the ‘not too young to rule’ mantra.

“We appeal for calm on all sides. We call on the security agencies to spare our young ones. Nigeria cannot afford to exterminate its young generation which constitutes about 60% of its population.

“They have shown the potential for leadership. It is the criminals who infiltrated the demonstrators who must be identified.

“The security agencies must separate the wheat from the chaff.

“We also suggest the use of non-lethal tools like water cannons and teargas instead of bullets to disperse demonstrators.”
