A Northern group under the auspices of Arewa Youth Assembly (AYA), has called on the attention of President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to act swiftly to protect Nigerians against the activities of hoodlums that have taken over the peaceful protest on ENDSARS to perpetrate their evil act.
The group in a statement by its speaker, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, and made available to Daily Post in Kaduna on Monday, said, “In light of the current happenings in various part of the country, with regards to the #Endsars protest, our attention has been drawn to the activities of hoodlums across the country who have taken charge of the process to perpetrate their evil act by causing menace to an already agitated society.”
The group explained that it is the civic rights of all Nigerians to put forward their agitation via peaceful protest or other means that conforms with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, saying that every Nigerian reserves the right to safer environments to go about their normal businesses, hence any effort by miscreants to disrupt this peace will be met with stiff resistance. 
“While we understand that it is the civic rights of all Nigerians to put forward their agitation via peaceful protest or other means that conforms with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, we must also understand that every Nigerian reserves the right to safer environments to go about their normal businesses, hence any effort by miscreants to disrupt this peace will be met with stiff resistance,” the statement observed. 
The group observed that following the commencement of #ENDSARS protest in parts of the country, there have been instances of attacks on protesters which have further resulted to death of innocent Nigerians and distruction of properties worth millions of naira.
The statement reminded, “Only this morning, the news of the unfortunate jail break in Benin correctional center, we fear if this is going to become the trend of events, if measures are not put in place, this might escalate to further mayhem which will be capable of creating turmoil all around the country. This is not good for the peace we have so far enjoyed and not also good for the intention of the youth protest. 
It called on President Buhari to act swiftly and put an end to all what the group described as “madness” being exhibited on the streets since the aim is been compromised, adding, “We are no longer comfortable with what might come up next, Nigeria is not a banana republic, everyone must be reminded of this fact.”
“Again, we will resist any attempt to undermine the peace we enjoyed. It’s Nigeria first before any individual,” the statement said.
