Nigeria: Emir Of Borgu Warns Of The Implication Of EndSARS Protest To The Economy

The Emir of Borgu in Niger State, Muhammed Sani Haliru Dantoro (Kitoro IV), has warned against lingering #EndSARS protests, saying further escalation of unrest would ground the country’s economy.

Dantoro, who spoke after his investiture as Patron of Oil and Solid Mineral Producing Area Landlords Association of Nigeria (OMPALAN), in Abuja, said that despite the pain and brutality unleashed by members of the defunct Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), sincere and hardworking officers still exist.

He also added that everyone needs to work together inspite of religious differences in order to achieve a economically viable country.

He said: “If we destroy this country, what are we going to benefit. I know there are cases of brutality but the issue is that there are still good ones among our police officers.

“I know government is working to ensure the demands of the protesters are met, so we must play our part as citizens not to allow the situation to deteriorate.

“If we continue with the protest, the common man will suffer and the economy would be grounded.”

Meanwhile, the President of OMPALAN, Bishop Udo Azogu, has said the association would always “provide support especially in the areas of peace, security, environmental protection, wealth creation, redistribution as well as domestication of robust government policies and programmes at the grassroots.

“So, the acceptance of His Highness to function as Patron of OMPALAN will add impetus to our collective effort to coordinate effective response to the spate of lawlessness and insecurity, ravaging the entire country.”
