The Lead Pastor, Trinity House Church, Lagos State, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, has said the #EndSARS protest was a great opportunity Nigeria leaders missed to bring the youths together and provide answers to their request for redirection and restructuring.

Ighodalo spoke on Thursday at the Bishop Kola Onaolapo 10th memorial anniversary lecture held at the University of Lagos.

According to him, the protest was rather seen by the leaders as an action taken against them.

Ighadalo averred that the youths   just used the police as an instrument of one of the things they were upset about.

Meanwhile ,police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, has explained why tear gas was shot at the #EndSARS memorial procession by men of the Nigerian Police Force, which took place at the Lekki toll-gate, on Thursday.

Hundeyin explained in an interview that the procession had stopped and traffic was building at the toll-gate. He said the police had to fire tear gas to disperse the crowd in order to relieve traffic at the spot.
