The national leadership of the Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF) said it has alerted its members across the northern states of Nigeria and Abuja to be ready to confront any group of people organising a second wave of the EndSARS protests across the country.
National chairman of the forum, comrade Elliot Afiyo while briefing newsmen, said the forum acknowledged the grievances of the protesting youths but regret the fact that the protest was hijacked midway by hoodlums which caused serious damage to the economy of the country, and therefore would not fold its arms and allow a second wave of the protests.
They called on the Federal and Northern States Governments and all the security agencies to take proactive measures to avert this impending crisis.
The national leadership of the forum, however, expressed concern over the security situation in the country, especially in the Northern part of Nigeria, as according to him many innocent people were killed without any action taken.
However, they appealed to President Mohammadu Buhari to take drastic steps about the service chiefs, as they have performed below expectations and are not doing anything to improve the security situation in the North East.
