Abdullahi Adamu, Senator representing Nasarawa-west, says the ENDSARS protests was sponsored by some prominent Nigerians against the interest of the North.

The ENDSARS protests which was embarked upon by youths across some states in the country to demand for an end to police brutality and reform of the Force.

But Adamu, in an interview with Daily Trust, claimed the protests would not have taken place if the president was not from Northern Nigeria.

“Some prominent Nigerians have made claims to that effect, just about a month or six weeks after their prophecy of doom became manifest with the EndSARS protests. We believe that from the little information we got when the protests were taking place, the actual timing was not what the young people really wanted,” said the Nasarawa Senator.

“At some points, some people, somewhere, who had ulterior motives against the government wanted to use the labour strike against the government to foment trouble and destabilise the country.

“Fortunately, the negotiation between labour and the government was successful, leading to labour calling off their intended strike. The government handled this situation very well. But the issue of police was a bit hasty because it has affected the morale of the police.

“We saw some machinations against northern interest in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. One of us is the president today. And you will never see this kind of nonsense when a non-northerner is there. I am sorry and regret to say this, but that is the reality and the truth.”
