The Borno State Governor, professor Babagana Zulum has warned Nigerian youths over agitation and movement for the reformation of the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Mr Zulum who is loved by many youths in the country told the youths that the Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād known as Boko Haram crisis in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria started with protests by youths against the use of motorcycle helmets in the state capital, Maiduguri.

The governor said this during a meeting he had with the President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday.

“The whole Boko Haram saga started as a result of the protests by some youths in Maiduguri against the use of helmet by motorcycle riders. You have seen the situation now.

“Now, there is emerging peace in Borno State and we don’t want anybody to disrupt the peace.

“The youths are with us, we are taking very good care of them, palliatives are being distributed to them as and when due.

“We are giving them some certain financial supports and I think the best way every Nigerian should seek for his/her right is through legitimate means, otherwise we are not going anywhere. Peace is very important,” he said.
