The song said , “ Baba, please for God ’ s sake , consider our pleas for help ; baba , please defend us ; the North is crying , they are killing our people . They are burning our property ; baba , please . ”

Meanwhile, the northern elders noted that insecurity and hunger were reasons behind the continuous protests by

EndSARS campaigners in the country.

While protesting against killings , intimidation and harassment of protesters by men of the Nigeria police, the elders under the aegis of the Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development , called on the Inspector -General of Police, Mohammed Adamu , to “ urgently arrest the erring police officers and hoodlums responsible for the attacks . ”

These observations were contained in a communiqué issued on Saturday evening after the expanded meeting of CNEEPD held in Abuja .

The communiqué was signed by Zana Goni , North East; Dr Mohammed Suleman , North West; and Prof Ofa Afolabi ; North Central .

The CNEEPD said that the best way possible for the President to restore public confidence in security agencies was , “ the immediate restructuring beginning with the sack of the service chiefs . ”

The 12-point communiqué reads in part, “ We support in totality the continuous peaceful protests by Nigerians across the country over police brutality and call on the protesters to remain focused and peaceful .

“ We condemn the persistent insecurity in Nigeria particularly in the North , despite the huge investments so far running into trillions of naira to the Armed Forces of Nigeria . We call for an independent forensic investigation into the expenditure of the Armed Force from December 2015 till date .

“ We call on Mr . President to immediately sack the current service chiefs and restructure the entire security architecture of Nigeria . ”
