#EndSARS: Sultan tells FG to handle protest with maturity and wisdom


The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abaubakar Sa’ad lll-led Jama’atu Nasril Islam has censured the attack on #EndSARS protesters by soldiers in Lagos.

The Sultan of Sokoto, who is the profound head of Nigerian Muslims, denounced the hijack of a peaceful protest by criminals which had come about into killings and devastations of property.

He engaged the Federal Government to apply wisdom and maturity in taking care of the crisis.

The Sultan talked through the Secretary General of the JNI, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu in an announcement in Kaduna on Thursday.

In the announcement named, #EndSARS imbroglio: general appeal for calm,’ the religious body, likewise engaged authentic protesters to pull back from the streets.

The statement read in part, “The agitation for the #EndSars borne out of concern for the lives of Nigerians against the excesses of some of the members of the special police unit has since been hijacked by miscreants who have been looking for such opportunities to settle scores with their adversaries within the police and/or politicians.

“These miscreants are now the driving force of the #EndSars protest. Hence, the attacks on lives and properties as well as looting and arsons thereby creating serious pandemonium which is completely at variance with the objectives of the #EndSars conveners.

“The JNI thereby appeal for calm both from the protesters and the military to prevent plunging the country into the state of anarchy. We should not by our actions give ‘conflict preneurs’ the opportunity to further escalate the situation to full blown violence that will lead us to a despicable condition.

“The government on its part should also continue to apply restraint and maturity in handling the situation as the atmosphere is so tensed that any misstep by the government will spell doom for the country.”
