The statement made available to CableReporters read:
"I condemn in every strong term the deliberate shooting of unarmed protesters in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria by the Nigerian army"

"The right to peaceful association and protest is a fundamental tenet guiding every democratic system, the very reason that saw me in the Enugu peaceful #EndSars protest, because it is just to peacefully make our plights known and it's equally right to demand an end to Police brutality"

"The calculated killing of Innocent youth by the same people that swore to protect them is a clear abuse of power, disregard of rules of engagement, and any infringement of the fundamental right to life of the affected citizens and must be condemned by all."

"At this end, I call on all Enugu youths, and  Nkanu youths in particular anywhere in Nigeria to shun violence, vandalization of private and public facilities, and remain the civil and responsible youths we have been."

"Equally, I call on all my Nkanu brothers and sisters in Enugu state to please, obey the curfew order of the state government which is aimed at bringing lasting peace to the state."

"I condemn the destruction of government and private facilities in Enugu metropolis and urge all youths involved to join hands with the peaceful personality of our governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and put an immediate end to it"

"Let's not burn down our home in making our demands known, Nkanu and Enugu state is our home and we must continue to join hands with the leadership of state government to ensure continued peace and  development of our state as Enugu has been the most peaceful state in Nigeria " 

"I assure you that I and my executives are working seriously with the Enugu state government to arrest the situation and bring lasting peace. Please shun violence!!!" Edeani stated
