Mohammed stated this during a meeting with newspaper editors in Lagos on Friday, December 4, 2020, while responding to a question on the alleged arrest of some #EndSARS protesters and sponsors.

According to him, being a member of #EndSARS protest is not an immunity from being investigated or charged for any offence or breach of the laws.

“Being a member of #EndSARS protest does not grant you immunity if you have committed any crime against the land. The key thing is that you must be treated according to the laws.

“Even those whose accounts were frozen, the Central Bank of Nigeria went to court to seek permission to freeze the accounts. I am also aware that some of them whose international passports were seized had been returned.

“None can stop the government from investigating anybody, including #EndSARS protesters. Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, you must not take the laws into your hands.

“You must follow the due process because where your rights end is where someone else’s rights start,” he said.

Mohammed, however, insisted that there was no clampdown on the protesters and their supporters, adding that government is following the due process in the investigations being carried out.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Nigerian Police Force had filed a suit in a Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking to scrap the judicial panels of inquiry set up by state governments to probe allegations of rights abuses following the nationwide #EndSARS protests.

However, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, denied initiating the suit and ordered that the Police legal officer be queried, saying he may face further sanctions if found guilty of dereliction of duty.
