President Buhari has said that at least 69 lives were lost during EndSARS protest across the country.

Speaking during a virtual meeting with former leaders and security chiefs on Friday, he said 51 civilians, 11 police officers and seven soldiers had died.

A statement released by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, at the end of the meeting also quoted Buhari as saying it is unfortunate that the “initial genuine and well-intended protest of youths was hijacked and misdirected”.

The past Nigerian leaders present at the meeting included Gen. Yakubu Gowon, President Olusegun Obasanjo, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, Chief Ernest Shonekan, Gen. Abulsalami Abubakar and former President Goodluck Jonathan, as they commended him for steps taken so far.


  1. Well no any commend from me here to the stubborn man called muhammadu buhari, during his useless speech….he did not even have any sympathy for the youth lost there life during the protesters in lekki toll gate and others. Buhari is so useless, he only condolences for the officers that lost there life,…what about the legendary youth who lost the life for #BetterNigeria?

  2. Which step did he take? Ordering army to be killing people or what. Those aids are the one misleading and misinforming the president about the situation in the country.

  3. Dangerous issues need drastic measures, a sticch in time saves nine. When the #endsars #policebrutality it was peaceful not until hoodlums wanted to hijacked it and instead of providing security for the protesters you asked the security agencies to stop them by force which is not possible. That’s why it leads to bad situation we are.

  4. Why can’t president speak louder (soro soke) in this critical situation instead of sending his aids to address Nigerians. Even if one life lost it means a lot.

  5. Who is even talk?
    But did you mention that when you were memorising that thing you called speech, or was that your 11mins speech that made Nigerians speechless recorded before the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting. Park one side abeg.

  6. How did he know the total number of dead people when he didn’t explain to Nigerians who sent those solidiers may the blood of the innocent people who died during this protest judge you.

  7. Do you people know that God is King of Kings,…. But note✍️… do you know we can charge human being accommodating to he/her with physical and appearance? If you look at President muhammadu buhari through his physical and his appearance you will know he is not the type of President we need in Nigeria, he is not a good leader.
