Thugs attack #EndInsecurityNow protesters in Kano
The thugs have stopped a protest that is due to begin Thursday morning in all 19 northern states.
“We walked peacefully when bandits and gunmen invaded the protest, wounding up to 30 people and tearing our banners,” protester Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim told the Daily Trust in Kano.
They were attacked on the BUK road to Kofar Famfo.
The movement announced the start of the protest action on Thursday and informed the police about the protection.
The protesters said police abandoned them at the start of the attack.
“The police had to watch us because we told them which routes we would take,” said one of the protesters.
They say the police have reappeared after the attack and that the demonstrators are gathering to resume movement.
End Insecurity Now also continued in Kaduna to protest banditry, abductions, rapes, uprisings and killings by Boko Haram in the region.
