“I have not committed any crime other than joining other prominent Nigerians, apart from accepting government appointments on behalf of our constituency, the Nigerian Bar Association and civil society and indeed the masses for national responsibility.

“Two prominent government lawyers have made unwarranted allegations on national television.
But I did not want to be intimidated or manipulated by the government.

“I urge the good Nigerians, my colleagues in the Nigerian Bar Association, my colleagues in the civil rights movement and the Nigerian people to hold the government accountable if anything happens to me.

“Last night, one of the most famous EndSARS opponents testified in front of the panel was Miss Camsiochukuk Ibe, who was attacked and severely beaten, in what was apparently an assassination attempt, according to her adviser, in very disturbing photos.

“I have heard the panel call for the government to be honest, saying that what we have done is what we have done. The panel report is left to the government and Nigeria to do.
