Renowned activist and leader of the #ENDSARS movement, Segun ‘Sega’ Awosanya (@Segalink), has withdrawn from the ongoing protests in the country.
The popular social activist announced his withdrawal following an alleged hijacking of the protests by external elements.
He tweeted: “All efforts to talk sense into the arrowheads, who are mostly abroad and the few in their high estates have proven abortive. I believe everyone is matured enough to face the consequences of their actions.”
“Staging coordinated attacks on prominent reform advocates and then using a credible advocacy’s campaign to raise funds through an unregistered NGO, threatening the integrity of our nation and gunning for youth insurrection in the name of #EndSARS. Is this even sane?” he stated in another interview.
Segalink championed the campaign against police brutality in 2017 and stood as an intermediary between citizens and the police.
He stated that the protests have hijacked for other purposes.
