Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has reacted to the killing of innocent protesters.
He condemned the Nigerian military and the police for their actions against End SARS protesters.
In a statement on Wednesday, the cleric said offensives by security agencies had worsened the situation.
Adeboye also appealed to the youths to stay calm and avoid any act that would make them more exposed to brutality.
He wondered why the police was yet to arrest attackers of peaceful protesters across Nigeria.
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms, attacks launched by the Nigerian military on unarmed young people, who have been peacefully protesting police brutality over the last 12 days as #EndSARS protests.
“I am confounded that prior to the sad events at the #LekkiTollGate, the Nigeria Police failed to arrest the weapon-bearing hoodlums who were attacking the well-organized and non-violent #EndSARS protesters.
“The condemnable actions of the military risks driving the agitations of the young people underground, thereby making the situation unmanageable.
“I call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the tragic events at Lekki and other parts of the country, give justice to all victims even as it engages the #EndSARS protesters to reach a common agreement to end police brutality.
“I am also appealing to the Youths to allow peace reign & stop any form of action that would give the military any other form of excuse to attack”, the cleric wrote.
Adeboye prayed that the peace of God would come upon Nigeria at this period.
