A group identified as Citizens Against Fake Activists (CAFA), has commended the federal government for its actions against some of the promoters of the #EndSARS protest across the nation.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, November 9, CAFA’s Executive Director, Bamidele Johnson, said the action taken by the federal government to prosecute the promoters of the #EndSARS campaign is timely.

Johnson called on relevant authorities to resist blackmail and intimidation attempts by fake activists across Nigeria and the world.

He said the group is worried by the controversy raised by some of those who their bank accounts have been frozen on the orders of the court following a suit filed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

His words: “We are similarly miffed that persons that instigated violence against. Nigeria is gripping about being barred from flying.”

“We will equally set out by making a fair disclosure that we support the demand for the reform of the Nigeria Police Force and the dismantling of any of its specialized unit found to have breached the rules of civil policing while offending officers should be tried as common criminals.”

He said those who financed the protests have shared responsibility for the hacking of government websites as part of the protests. Also, while calling on the CBN to continue its investigation, CAFA urged the inspector general of police, Mohammed Adamu, to identify those responsible for the violence that engulfed the #EndSARS protest.

Johnson said: “Once identified, the Inspector General of Police should charge these persons for terrorism financing and any other crime they might have committed”.

He said that the financiers are accessories to the murder of the dozens of police officers who were killed by the incited mobs.

CAFA said the promoters financed the hijacking of the government’s website.

“The torching of government buildings, websites, buses, vehicles, and even private homes and businesses is arson. It is against the law. The protest sponsors and financiers have responsibility.” “The looting of food banks, storehouses, food reserve, and other times is theft accessioned by braking and entry. There are laws against this, and some people coordinated the attacks on these locations.”
