A controversial aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie has claimed that the #EndSars campaign is a campaign instigated by cybercriminals aka Yahoo boys.
She made the claim in a post via the micro-blogging platform.
Lauretta stated that the #EndSars campaign is a distraction meant to set back the security of the nation.
“I have no doubt that there are some staff of SARS who are unprofessional in their dealings with the public, same way we have unprofessionalism in the Army, Mainstream Police, Customs, Civil Service, Public Service, traders, lawyers, doctors, journalists, teachers, pastors etc.
” But what is going on now, is a COORDINATED ATTACK BY CYBER CRIMINALS joined by UNSUSPECTING INNOCENT CITIZENS.
“This not the first time. We must stand by our national institutions while working to improve their effectiveness. That’s what patriotism is about. NO SENTIMENTS.” she wrote.
