The Nigerian Police Force (NPF), on Sunday, said that the allegations credited to former Senator Shehu Sani that the police is still holding 2020 EndSARS protesters in its detention facilities across Nigeria is not only false but misleading. 

A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that the Nigeria Police Force categorically denies the recent allegations made by Senator Shehu Sani at the 2024 Democracy Day Dinner on June 12, 2024, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, where the former Senator falsely claimed that some young people have been detained since the 2020 EndSARS protest. 

“The Nigeria Police affirms that no individual is being unlawfully detained by the Nigeria Police Force or any other security agency in Nigeria due to the EndSARS protest. All arrested individuals have been processed according to the law, and none remain unlawfully detained. In Lagos, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu pardoned approximately 100 suspects arrested by the Police during the protest. 

“For emphasis, no one anywhere in Nigeria is under Police detention or being wrongly persecuted for participating in the EndSARS protest. The issues surrounding the protest have been debated, researched, and documented, and lessons have been learnt. We have forgiven ourselves and moved on,” Force Spokesperson said. 

While urging the public to disregard this claim, Adejobi, assured citizens of police commitment to upholding justice, the rule of law, and human rights. 

“We encourage verifying information before making public statements to avoid harm and incitement,” Adejobi admonished influential citizens.
