Speaking at the protest, deputy speaker of the IYC mobile parliament, Barrister Tare Porri, narrated:

“We can’t even comprehend the position of the Nigerian Police Force, an agency of government whose primary responsibility is to provide security, protect lives and ensure peace in our society. But the police have suddenly become an instrument of death.”
