The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, says the primary objective of the EndSARS protests that rocked the nation in October was to effect a regime change.
He also asserted that fake news gave impetus to the protests that culminated in the death of civilians, police personnel and their assets.
Adamu who spoke in Government House, Port Harcourt during a parley between the presidency and leaders of the South South geopolitical zone also alleged that intelligence has confirmed that the EndSARS protest was funded from within and outside the country to achieve an ulterior motive.
He condemned what he described as the mindless and senseless attacks against security operatives in Rivers State and conveyed the heartfelt condolences of the Nigeria Police Force to the families of the deceased Officers who were “gruesomely murdered unjustifiably”.
The IGP promised to stop at nothing until their killers are arrested and brought to justice, while reassuring that the Force will not be discouraged nor deterred but will remain firm and focused in ensuring that lives and property of citizens are protected.
