Protests Rock Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Bauchi, Niger Over Insecurity by nairalandankrah: 6:59am On Oct 16
The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) yesterday took to the streets in Kaduna, Bauchi, Niger and Kano States to protest the escalating security challenges facing the North.

In Kaduna, the protesters who marched from Waff Road to the Kaduna State House of Assembly Complex demanded an “immediate end to banditry, terrorism, and Kidnappings in Northern Nigeria.”

They carried placards and banners with various inscriptions such as: “Stop the killings in the North,” “Empower SWAT to end insecurity,” “End Boko Haram now,” End Banditry Now,” “The North is Bleeding,” and “Stop Rape Now.”

The protesters were received by the Chief Whip of the Assembly, Hon. Shehu Yunusa.

Addressing the Chief Whip, the coordinator of the protest, Mr. Sa’ad Bako, said the CNG was compelled to protest the unending insecurity in the North.

The group lamented the recent violent attacks on innocent people in Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara, Sokoto, Borno, Adamawa and other northern communities and other disturbances across the North.

“This sadly, has ultimately placed the current federal administration of President Muhammad Buhari and a section of the northern political, cultural and spiritual leadership on the wrong side of public opinion – and history.

“The rise in the spate of banditry, kidnappings, cattle rustling and bloodshed in the North has become a major trying point for everyone but the authorities – who have remained detached from the reality,” Bako said.

The group demanded: “An immediate and comprehensive improvement of security all over Northern Nigeria.

“The federal and state administrations should address major failings in their perception of the current desperate situation and their response to the people’s demands for their rights to security.

“A total overhaul of the leadership of the national security agencies, a review of the entire national security architecture and the national security committees in order to inject higher levels of competence, integrity and accountability in the manner they deal with the security challenges in the nation and particular the North.

“The promulgation of legislation to compel the review of the salary and general incentive packages of all men of the security services.”

In the press statement signed by the CNG’s spokesman, Mr. Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the group said the protest, which would spread across the North-western region of the country is to show concern over deteriorating national security and other pressing issues.

The protesters visited the government house and the state police command in the two states to deliver their messages to the government.

They also backed the creation of Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) team, saying it is in a better position to tackle various forms of security threats such as killings, banditry, kidnapping, rape, and Boko Haram terror attacks in the region if they are fully equipped and trained.

In Niger State, the protesters decried the poor condition of road infrastructures in the state, which they describe as death traps.

“This protest is not against any movement, it is not against any government, we are here to only show our grievances that as Nigerians we are not enjoying what we should enjoy,’’ they noted.

They urged the federal government to fix all its roads and address poor power supply in the entire Northern states.

If you are still asking why we still #EndSARS protest, you have it from the 'erudite' Mr. Abdul-Azeez Suleiman

If a Northern person, taking 95% under Pa Buhari is not enjoying what he should enjoy, sit down there hating on #EndSARS you hear. Don't carry your placard and join us. Lazy person like you grin.

Pls who else had noticed that boko haram and bandits has really suspend their attacks, we haven't hear any news about any attacks since the beginning of the #endsars protest. Are the service chiefs afraid of northerners starting their version of #sacktheservicechiefs protest or what?
Let think about it

This government has itself to blame if things really spiral out of control.. Buhari was given enough time and patience. All he does is to lazy around in the presidential Vila. It's wrong to turn the Villa into an old peoples home. The country is facing huge challenges. High unemployment rate, insurgency here and there, infastructural decay, unproductive economy, ethnic bickering an all that! But what do we get? A highly polarising president who seem to enjoy stoking the fire while fanning the embers of corruption and tribalism. Buhari really needs to go back to Daurra. He is not up to the job. He lacks both the intelligence and temperament to run an inclusive government capable of stoping Nigeria from sliding off the Cliff. I say this because from the way things re going, this country has a detiny with serious violent conflicts in the future if Buhari continues with his annoying style of sectional and unproductive governance..

These people don't stop to amaze me

The kind of insecurity we have in the North is not a work for the police.

Must they go against every other region to protest the insecurity?

Is it because police brutality is almost not existing in the North.

If they continue with this madness, others will look away when insecurity hits them

I guess they knew how impoverished and lack of education has degraded that part of the country and the resultant effect of such, on their actions when they eventually start such campaign over there. It will be hard to subside, so they are taking serious caution. Just a thought

Good. What of Borno state the home of boko haram?

It's time to come out and protest against ALL forms of insecurity.
