The National Democratic Front (NDF) has insisted that the purported call for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation by some #ENDSARS protesters was politically motivated.
Protest across the country demanding an end to Police brutality has intensified despite the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and subsequent formation of the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT).

- 16 CSOs warn against reprisal to #EndSARS protests
According to the NDF, the exercise has been hijacked by “crisis entrepreneur aiming to trigger the second phalanx of the attack on the Federal Government by creating the impression of widespread discontent.”
In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Dr. Abdulkadir Bolaji, on Saturday, the group condemned the ‘politically motivated agenda’ adding that President Buhari has impacted a huge number of Nigerian youth with his National Social Investment Programmes.
The group “implored innocent Nigerians joining the protest and demanding for President Buhari’s resignation to take a deeper look at what they are taking part in and ask critical questions.”
