President Muhammadu Buhari says he is disgusted with the coverage of EndSARS protests by foreign media, including the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and America’s Cable News Network (CNN).
He expressed this at a meeting with state governors at the presidential villa in Abuja on Tuesday.

The youth in October held #EndSARS protest in major cities, demanding the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police and end to police brutality.

The protest gained global traction with prominent people across the globe lending their voices to the campaign.

In his first public comment on the coverage of the protests, the president said the foreign media coverage was not balanced.

He specifically accused CNN and BBC of omitting the killing of police officers and attacks on police stations and prisons.

I was disgusted by the coverage, which did not give attention to the policemen that were killed, the stations that were burnt, and prisons that were opened. (They said we are all at fault. We don’t have the sympathy of anyone. We are on our own),” he was quoted as saying by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

President Buhari further warned that the government would no longer allow violent demonstrations in Nigeria, adding: “democracy does not mean confusion or lack of accountability.”
