Benin Solidarity Movement(BSM) has thrown its weight behind the promoters of the #endsars protest which has been a common decimal in many parts of the country while warning the leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to desist from fuelling the looting, burning and destruction that has characterised the hijack of the protest.
According to Elder Curtis Eghosa Ugbo, President of the Benin Solidarity Movement(BSM), “the agitation is legitimate and the agitators are well coordinated and focused. Their resilience which can change the history of the nation for the better is worthy of commendation.
“However, we take strong objection to the hijack of the agitation recently by some low life individuals who resort to looting, arson, robbery, rape, car jacking and the rest.
“The latest narrative in this show of shame is the jailbreaks in Benin City, the Edo State capital; the burning, looting and destruction to the properties.
“However, reports pieced together by our intelligence unit put the blame on all these phantom attack on the utterances of Nnamdi Kanu, the self-acclaimed leader of the banned Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB).
“We of the BSM wish to warn Kanu that his days of mischief making are over and he should tow a part of decency and loyalty to the Nigerian state. Anything short of that will spell doom for him and his army of renegades.
“Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) wish to sound a note of final warning to Kanu and his cohorts that any attempt by him to play smart would be vehemently resisted by the BSM.
“If Kanu is so desirous of destroying anything he should go and destroy his father’s property in Abia State. Also his idiotic claim that Edo State is part of Biafra should stop henceforth. Edo State is not part of Biafra and would never be.
“We need to tell him that a monkey that claims to be smart in the forest must thank his stars that there are enough trees in the forest to cover his trail.”
