The protests across the nation had been largely peaceful untill Monday, and eventually degenarated to full scale violence after the shooting of protesters at the Lekki Tollgate resulting to deaths and injuries.

The President who gave the order at a National Council Meeting on Thursday asked all the government at all levels to do all that is necessary to find a solution to the crisis in the country noting that the riots are taking an unwanted dimension which could result in full blown anarchy.

The President’s order was disclosed by the National Security Adviser Mr. Babagana Monguno who addressed reporters at the end of Thursday’s security meeting.

Mr Monguno enjoined legitimate protesters to come to a meeting point with government as the government has begun to make some concessions.

According to him, if the atmosphere in the country is not conducive for dialogue, there will be no resolution to the conflict.
