BREAKING: DSS ARRESTS CONVENER OF ‘AREWA LIVES MATTER’ PROTEST
The Department of States Service, DSS, has arrested the leader of the northern-based group, Bilal Adamu Halilu, who had planned a Thursday peaceful protest tagged “Stop the Killings and Attacks, Arewa Lives Matter,” AIT reports.
The group had reportedly issued a statement notifying the general public and the Nigerian Police of its intention to march to all State houses of Assembly in the 19 northern States, and the National Assembly, calling on Government to stop the incessant killings and attacks on Nigerians.
“DSS has detained me since morning. I was invited on Wednesday and going into their office, they have created blockades around the Houses of Assembly, preventing us to exercise our fundamental right. They have no intention for discussion but to detain me,” AIT quoted Bilal Adamu Halilu.
