She said the UN was shocked by the loss of lives and destruction of facilities that were the repercussion of the protests.
She said, “We did raise, while we were with Mr. President, the issue around the recent challenges of EndSARS protest that happened in the country.
“It was of course one that the Secretary-General and we all were alarmed, and of course, support the country in trying to get back on track.
“Young people and their demands for social justice, governance are all legitimate ones and must be done peacefully. But we were all disturbed by the damage level, loss of lives and we continue to condole with those families who suffer those losses.”

Mohammed, while speaking on the Lekki shooting, noted that the UN Secretary-General had made it clear that the organization believes everyone has the right to demonstrate peacefully on issues they want to raise with their government.
