Stop #EndSARS Protests Now, Criminals Are Taking Advantage – Gov. Yahaya Bello

The Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has appealed to the #EndSARS protesters nationwide to stop the protests as some criminal elements have started to infiltrate their ranks.

The Governor noted that since the federal government has promised to look into their demands, it is important for them to trust the government and allow it some time to work out the details.

Bello made the call in a state-wide broadcast where expressed worries that what has so far been a peaceful protest may be allowed to degenerate into violent clashes if caution and wisdom is not applied to protect the victories already recorded from the online and physical protests.

He warned that the criminal elements must not be allowed to spoil the good works of the innocent protesters who are calling for an end to police brutality and a total reform of the system.

He said in the broadcast: “We are now concerned that what has been a generally peaceful citizens’ protest is now threatening to dissolve into mindless attacks on government facilities and running battles with the police.”
