Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum has warned End SARS promoters to prevent it from degenerating into an insurgency.

The Governor advised the youth to learn from the genesis of Boko Haram, which he disclosed “started as a result of protest by some youths in Maiduguri against the use of helmet by motorcycle riders.’’

According to him, “Everyone has seen the situation now. Over one million people have been displaced and the most affected population are the vulnerable and the youth.

“Some of those who led the protests have left Borno State. They are either staying in Abuja, Lagos or abroad. We have to be very careful.”

Zulum said this while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Friday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Zulum, however, condemned police brutality and the killings at Lekki Tollgate.

He also criticised what he called ‘the excesses’ of some of the Nigerian youths “in taking the laws into their hands by destroying some of our infrastructures in an attempt to support the legitimate demands of EndSARS protesters.”

The Borno state Governor further advised Nigerians to demand their rights through legitimate means in order to have peace.
