Wike makes U-turn, joins #EndSARS protests

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Tuesday joined protesters and called for the total reform of the Nigeria Police Force.

The governor, who had banned #EndSARS protests in the state last night, made a U-turn on Tuesday.

Wike, while addressing the protesters, said though he was not in support of the Tuesday protest, no governor in the country had protested against the security outfit as he had done.

He said, “I never supported us to be here. I took an oath to protect the lives and property of people of the state. The blood of Rivers of people matters to me.

“Rivers State has suffered in the hands of SARS. When we raised the alarm of SARS activities, they did not give attention but it has now happened in other places.
