The anticipated calm expected in Nigeria after the ENDSARS protests transitioned into violence could be at hand.
A new video shows an army officer begging angry protesters to obey the curfew instituted by the government to ensure that peace prevails.
Addressing a group of protesters, the officer convinced them that violence was not needed in getting the government to succumb to their demands.
He stated that by obeying the curfew restrictions, the real perpetrators of violence will be identified and apprehended.
The soldier pleaded on their conscience and asked them to stay indoors while the right decisions concerning police brutality were made.
In his heartwarming message, he admitted that it was completely wrong for soldiers to be shooting down civilians with guns bought with civilian taxes.
The officer, however, begged protesters to be law abiding citizens and not to resort to any form of violence to incite military action against themselves.
