Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has met with youth leaders from all Local Government Areas of Kaduna state appealing to them not to engage in any act of violence or looting.
El-Rufai in a statement during the stakeholders meeting vowed to prosecute looters and those threatening the peace of the citizens in Kaduna South and Chikun Local Government Areas.
Condemning the recent attacks on policemen he said;
“You cannot condemn an entire profession because of the misconduct of a few. SARS is just a small unit of the Nigerian Police Force, and even among SARS, they are not all bad
“Yes, some of them might have been quite bad and killed many people, but that should not be used to frame the police in a manner that people feel justified to attack and kill policemen.
“I have seen a video where a policeman was attacked and burnt to death. For what? That policeman is a human being, creation from God, he has children, and he has a family.
“Who will look after them? The Nigerian Police is the only police we have, it Is our collective duty as citizens, as leaders to come together and help the police to be better, El-rufai added
He, however, stressed the need as citizens and leaders to come together and help the police to perform better in securing the lives and property of the people.
