Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has addressed the nation on the disturbances and violence that followed the #EndSars protests.

The President said the rights of citizens are paramount and urged the protesters to discontinue as their voices have been heard.

What did President Buhari say in his speech?

On Thursday night President Buhari urged protesters to stop demonstrating and instead engage with the government “in finding solutions”.

He did not however mention the shooting of protesters in Lagos which has led to global condemnation and criticism.

His speech has been widely criticised on social media, the birthplace of the #EndSars movement.

For many it was tone deaf, in that it failed to substantially address some of the key demands of the protesters. But it also reinforced the disillusionment with the current government many young Nigerians have been feeling, correspondents say.
