#EndSARS: N10 million relief fund donated by NASFAT to victims of attacks

Nasrul-lahi-l-Fatih Society has enjoined Nigerian youths protesting against police brutality to embrace peace and dialogue for a prosperous and inclusive Nigeria.

The Islamic group condemned the shooting at unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate and the wanton loss of lives and livelihoods resulting from arsons and looting in several states.

NASFAT, in a statement on Saturday by its Public Relations Secretary, Abdulakeem Yusuf, said the society had earmarked N10m as relief funds to assist injured victims and those whose businesses were looted.

The statement quoted NASFAT’s President, Mr Niyi Yusuf, as saying that the society welcomed the directives for an immediate resolution of the crisis and justice for victims of police brutality in line with the laws and Constitution of Nigeria.

The statement read in part, “The society commends the governors for their speedy inauguration of the judicial panel of inquiry into alleged cases of police brutality at the state level. The society also commends all our youths who have conducted themselves peacefully.

“In the same light, NASFAT called on the security agencies to always exercise restraint as they restore law and order across the country whilst appealing to all protesters and demonstrators to call off all related street protests and embrace the opportunity for dialogue and peace. The Society condemned all acts of violence, arson and banditry by hoodlums.”

The Chief Missioner of NASFAT, Abdulazeez Onike, called for an immediate end of all forms of violence, banditry and arson for sustainable peace and security.
