Protests hold in Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja over Southern Kaduna killings by bandits


Protesters sprung up on Saturday morning in Lagos, Abuja and Kaduna in reaction to the killings going on in southern Kaduna state.

The protests took place about 48 hours after bandits attacked Apiashyim, Kibori, Atakmawei, Apyiako, and Magamiya villages in Southern Kaduna.

The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union gave figures of fatalities that countered that of the police, they said 33 people died while the police gave the total number of deaths as 21.

John Isaac, the National Youth Leader of SOKAPU, said in Kaduna, the protesters stormed the streets of Samaru-Kataf, Zonkwa and Mabushi areas in the Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.

The Zangon Kataf branch chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev Isaac Makama, said the protests showed that Nigerians are not happy with the government’s handling of the security situation in Nigeria.

“Let government rise up and protect the people because it is sad to see that people will just sit in their homes and get killed for no just cause, and these killers were never arrested even with the huge security around,” he said.

Solidarity protests have also taken place in Lagos and Abuja with police arresting protesters on grounds that they weren’t informed of the protests prior to their holding.
