Don't Protest Here...Military Warns Borno Residents

The 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri on Saturday cautioned residents of Borno against embarking on street protests, saying such was not allowed under emergency rule, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The division’s spokesman, Col. Sani Usman, in a statement, said, “Some unscrupulous elements, under the guise of (being) concerned indigenes of some parts of Borno, intend to stage a protest in Maiduguri.
“We are calling on these miscreants to stop their plans. We are also reminding all residents that Borno is under a state of emergency declared by the Federal Government.
“Consequently, such protest is unlawful and anyone involved in such acts will have himself to blame.”
Usman said the military was working hard to root out suspected terrorists from the state.
“We wish to assure the good people of Borno and indeed all law-abiding citizens that the military is doing all it could to root out terrorists causing mayhem in the society.
“Therefore, we solicit your continued support and understanding in the fight against insurgency and terrorism in the country,” he said.
