General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has endorsed the #EndSARS protests rocking the nation.
Adeboye said this in a tweet on Wednesday evening.
The respected cleric tweeted, “Our daughters will not be able to prophesy and young men will not see visions if we don’t keep them alive. I support the youths in this peaceful protest as they “speak up” to #EndPoliceBrutality #EndSARS #ENDSWAT.”
Adeboye, who is a mentor to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, had earlier in the year embarked on a protest against the killings in several parts of the country.
He had two weeks ago called for restructuring the country, a move which was criticised by the Presidency.
Thousands of youths have been protesting against the extrajudicial killings by policemen perpetrated mostly by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
The protests have continued despite the disbanding of SARS.
About 10 persons have been killed in the protests according to rights group, Amnesty International.
