#EndSARS; Islamic group reveals crisis advocates

Islamic human rights group, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has blamed those it labelled as fifth columnists for the crisis currently swinging across Nigeria.

According to Daily Post report, MURIC, in a statement on Thursday, signed by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, appealed for calm.

The group also hailed Nigeria youth for demanding an end to police brutality and pleaded with them to step back to allow the government to actualize their demands.

They observed that the only logical explanation for the bloodshed in Lagos is the involvement of non-indigenes.

Part of the statement reads;

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

“However, we are saddened by the carnage which attended the protests in the last 48 hours. The level of destruction and its geographical locations convince us that it was not the handiwork of the youths who started the demonstrations.

“There are also strong indications that the attacks on prisons where hardened criminals were set free was not carried out by our young ones. Neither was it part of their plan.

“Fifth columnists have infiltrated the rank and file of the protesters. The Lagos scenario is another cup of tea entirely. We are inclined to believe that the only logical explanation for the carnage in Lagos is the involvement of non-indigenes.”

The group described the attacks on palace of the Oba of Lagos, TVC, The Nation newspaper, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s mother’s house as a “combination of deliberate misquotation and political motivation.”
