The APC government under former President Buhari initiated a deadly crackdown on End SARS protesters, proclaimed a zero tolerance for southern groups calling for secession, but never applied the same approach to northern armed gunmen who ravaged communities for years; instead, amnesty was granted to them, whilst others were rehabilitated.
