A 20-year-old lone protester, Adam Usman, had warned Nigeria and the Economic Community of West States, ECOWAS, not to go to war against the Niger Republic.
The secondary school student in Nasarawa Local Government Area, Kano State, who carried a placard, with inscriptions, “I’m against war on Niger Republic”, “Dialogue is the best thing to do”, “War will hurt both Nigerians and Niger citizens”, said he is doing so for the good of Nigeria.
He said embarking on a war will be the beginning of serious problems for Nigeria. He dismissed insinuations that he was being sponsored, insisting that dialogue is the way to answer democratic issues.
Usman said he would take his protest around Kano and many other places to ensure President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other ECOWAS leaders hear his message.
