Arewa Agenda has expressed concern over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria, especially the North.

The body of Northern youths urged authorities and the people to work together to tackle the problem.

It noted that the End SARS protest is a great opportunity to challenge the system and address developmental issues.

The Convener, Mohammad Dahiru Lawal, at a press briefing in Kano on Sunday said the youths have a right to demand an end to Police brutality.

He called on all demonstrators to remain peaceful and adhere to democratic tenets in their agitation.

Arewa Agenda, however, cautioned the government to avoid any form of violent crackdown against innocent citizens.

Lawal commended ongoing efforts to address the issues and called for quicker actions.

On cases of violence, he advised protesters to be vigilant to avoid the hijack of their course.

“We are concerned about the possible escalation to violent situations where innocent lives and properties will end up bearing the brunt. This is in view in some instances across the continent”, Lawal said.

“Years after the Libyan uprising in 2011, the country continues to struggle to end the conflict and rebuild institutions. Tunisia’s fledgling democracy since the Arab spring is still struggling; economic crisis and political disaffection threaten its stability.

“In Nigeria, we must not subject our beloved country through similar torturous experience. Majority of our members and the young population are victims of ASUU strike; prospective NYSC members have been at home idling away; unemployed graduates are struggling.”

Lawal appealed to the youths not to relent in championing the cause of equity and justice.

He advised them to avoid “the temptation of succumbing to devilish intents or capitalizing on the protest for ulterior undertakings”.
