Again, FG Points Accusing Finger At EndSARS Protesters

The Federal government has again pointed an accusing finger at EndSARS protesters, who took part in the protests demanding an end to police brutality.

Speaking on the high cost of food in the country, the government blamed it on the EndSARS protesters noting that the protests affected food transportation and delivery across the country.

According to a statement signed by Laolu Akande, the spokesperson to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the government pointed the accusing finger on Wednesday at its weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting.

The government said the EndSARS protests in some instances destroyed food stores.

Other factors listed by the government include COVID-19 pandemic adding that the pandemic resulted in a delay in going out to the farm, which according to the government translated to delay in harvesting.

The government also listed banditry in the Northwest as another reason why farmers could not harvest fields cultivated as it also blamed the herders/farmers conflict that has seen farm produce destroyed.

Everyevery.ng gathered that food prices have skyrocketed in recent months, with major food items costing significantly higher than previous months.
