INSECURITY: COALITION OF NORTHERN GROUP SETS TO STAGE PROTEST TOMORROW

Disturbed by the ceaseless killings in the North, the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has rounded up modalities to stage a protest tomorrow, June 16th, 2020.


This was made known in a statement issued to journalists in Kaduna on Sunday, and signed by the spokesman of the group, Abdulazeez Suleiman.


The continuous massacre and butchering of lives in Katsina, Borno, Taraba, Sokoto, Kaduna, Zamfara, and several other northern communities have become a source of great worry.


The CNG stated that the protest is due to the unprecedented killings and destruction of lives and properties in most parts of northern States in the last three weeks.


It occurs with the characteristic hallmark of kidnappings, killings, burnings, cattle rustling, etc. with the consequences of reprisal attacks, restlessness, and the state of insecurity it presents.


“As a result, at this time of national reckoning, the entire administration seems out of tune with much, if not all, of the rest of the Nigerian population, necessitating a general opinion shift so fast and deeply.


“The consequences of the events of the last few weeks have, therefore, grown politically, economically, and socially too great to be ignored by any genuine northern stakeholders.


“The administration’s various attempts to reassert public confidence with repeated rhetoric of being on top of the situation, seems increasingly discordant as the violent attacks, killings, kidnaps and looting become more regular with calls to protest becoming overwhelmingly loud and widespread,” the statement said.


The statement noted that it was based on these happenings that CNG felt it owed residents of the region a duty to bring all stakeholders to stage a peaceful protest.


The group added that the protest will commence from Katsina, being the focal point of killings in the region, on June 16th, 2020, and stated that on June 20th, 2020, the protest will be simultaneously staged in all other states in the region.


CNG also urged residents of each State in the region who feel obliged, to voluntarily stick green leaves on their vehicles or places of business in solidarity as they go about their peaceful normal routines.


All participants, other sympathizers, are also asked to conduct themselves in a peaceful and responsible manner throughout.
