The United Nations (UN) has decried the attack on its office in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State.
UN Resident Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, issued the condemnation on Sunday.
Kallon noted that the perpetrators were not End SARS protesters.
“The @UN_Nigeria strongly condemns attacks on its assets in #Calabar by vandals who were out to discredit the peaceful protests to end police brutality.
“I call on youths to exercise restraints and engage in dialogue with the Government on their legitimate demands. @WHONigeria”, he tweeted.
Peaceful protests in the country against police excesses started in Lagos on October 8.
But the demonstrations snowballed into nationwide violence after a week.
Also on Sunday, Pope Francis called for prayers for Nigeria.
