Desperate politician in South-West using EndSARS protests to bring down Buhari’s govt – Miyetti Allah
The National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, says a desperate politician in the South-West orchestrated the EndSARS protests to bring down the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bodejo, who gave no names, alleged that the politician did this having realised he had lost out in his bid for the presidency in 2023.
He said that the protests started on a genuine note and got the support of many Nigerians.
Bodejo noted that Miyetti Allah supported the scrapping of SARS because of extortion and other atrocities personnel of the now-defunct squad perpetrated against its members.
However, he stated, the real intentions of those behind the protests came to the fore when the Federal Government acceded to the initial requests of the protesters but they still refused to leave the streets.
Bodejo, who spoke in an interview published by Saturday Sun, said, “I supported EndSARS protest hundred per cent because most members of the Federal State Anti Robbery squad of the Nigeria Police are inhuman.
“They have been very brutal to my Fulani people. The recent case we have at hand in Nasarawa State is that they shot to death a 90-year-old man in the presence of his children for no just cause.
“Across the country, they have been collecting huge sums of money from our people, especially if they know these people have sold cows.
“They arrest our people on flimsy reasons and demand between N500, 000 and N600, 000 for bail before they would release the person; they have been hard on our people.”
Bodejo added, “So when the protest against SARS started, I was very happy because I saw it as the liberation of my people from these wicked security men.
“However, after few days of protests, with the federal government heeding to the demands of these young protesters by scrapping SARS, yet they continued, it then shows there was more to EndSARS that many people didn’t know.
“There is a hidden agenda in the protests. Following the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu disbanded the outfit, were the protesters not supposed to have retired to their respective homes, but they added other things to their lists; demanding for other things that were not in their original agenda or request.
“Today, I wanted to travel, after being on the road for six hours because they blocked everywhere, I missed my flight. Which kind of EndSARS is this?
“From all indications, not just politicians, but a desperate politician in the Southwest is behind this movement, that is why we are no longer keeping quiet, and we have decided to let the nation know what is happening because most people were not aware or have not read meaning into what is happening.
“It is no longer protest; a desperate politician who felt he has lost out in the 2023 scheme is drumming for these our youths.”
