The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has expressed support for the #EndSARS protests being staged across the country against police brutality.

Adeboye said this in a tweet on Wednesday evening.

He tweeted, “Our daughters will not be able to prophesy and young men will not see visions if we don’t keep them alive.

“I support the youths in this peaceful protest as they “speak up” to #EndPoliceBrutality #EndSARS #ENDSWAT.”

The cleric had two weeks ago called for restructuring of the country,  a move which was criticised by the Presidency.

Thousands of youths have been protesting against the extrajudicial killings by policemen perpetrated mostly by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The protests have continued despite the police authority disbanding SARS.

About 10 persons have been reportedly killed in the protests according to rights group, Amnesty International, The PUNCH reported.
