There were protests in Abuja and Katsina state yesterday over the insecurity in the country.

The Northern Alliance Movement converged on Unity Fountain in Abuja, protesting attacks across the nation.

The chairman of the movement, Yahuza Getso, expressed disappointment in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

“People are being killed every now and then. Women are being raped, children are being killed. We’re tired of what’s happening. Mr. President, we didn’t vote for Garba Shehu nor Femi Adesina; come and address us.

“We’re not happy with the way you’re governing this country. Nowhere is safe! People are murdered on the Abuja-Kaduna Expressway and all the roads in northern Nigeria.”

Civil society groups in Katsina State also yesterday protested over killings in the state and other parts of Nigeria.

They were, however, dispersed by the police.

The protest took place at Kofar Soro Roundabout and emir’s palace.

Addressing journalists, one of the conveners of the protest, National Secretary of Muryar Talaka,  Bishir Dauda Sabuwar Unguwa, said the protest was  to draw the attention of the governments “to take the right steps towards addressing the degenerating and devilitatin challenge of insecurity in the North and the country as a whole”. 

“Today nobody is safe, even those living in the cities. We are all aware of the gruesome murder of the Katsina State Commissioner of Science and Technology, Dr Rabe Nasir, which shows that even those living in the cities are not safe.

“Many are still held in captivity, in kidnappers’ dens, many are killed. You cannot even travel from Katsina to Sokoto through Jibia road due to activities of Kidnappers.

“Today, we even have a parallel government run by bandits’ warlords in some parts of the country. So we want to draw the attention of the governments to do the needful as we join our brothers and sisters protesting all over the country,” he said.
