By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has disclosed that the peaceful End SARS protest was hijacked by anti-democratic forces in the country.
The governor said this while parleying with the media following a meeting of the Northern Governors Forum and traditional rulers in Kaduna, the state capital, yesterday, noting, however, that organisers of the protest had the best of intentions for the country.
In his words: “We believe that the End SARS organisers have the best of intentions, but there are people that are pushing their own evil, anti-democratic agenda.
“We have taken very clear positions on some of these issues, and we also back our road map, looking at various aspects of our lives, including Nigeria’s economic challenges, developmental and the almajiri problems,” he said.
Recall that the initially peaceful #EndSARS protests later turned violent as miscreants hijacked the demonstrations to unleash mayhem, resulting in the loss of lives and destruction of both public and private property.
