 The Criterion an Association of Women  in Business and  Professions has condemned in strong terms the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate on the night of 20th  October 2020.
The Association in a press release issued by its International Amirah, Hajia Fatymah Oyefeso also called for thorough investigation of the attack and urged the Federal Government to identify the perpetrators and bring them to book.
 According to the press statement, “This will in no small measure douse  the tension of the protesters and the family of the victims.  The Federal government should constitute  a Judicial Probe Panel to investigate the incident, bring the perpetrators to book and see that justice is served appropriately.
“What began as a peaceful protest seems to have been hijacked by hoodlums resulting in loss of lives and wanton destruction of properties. There is palpable fear across the country.
“The Criterion is particularly concerned because in time of war and civil unrest,  women and children are always at the receiving end.
“The Criterion calls for a thorough investigation to the barbaric act of shooting at Lekki toll gate and other part of the Country in a view to bring the perpetrators to book.
” We wish to sympathize with all the victims of the protest and those who may have suffered any loss and untold hardship during the protest and the avoidable  violence that followed
“We call on our  resilient youth to remain calm and return home while government is carrying out the investigation.
“We pray that Almighty Allah restores peace and harmony in the land.  Long live our dear country Nigeria.”
