Youths Protest Insecurity in Zamfara, Northern Nigeria

Armed, angry youth have staged a violent protest along the Gusau – Kaura Namoda Highway in Zamfara State, Nigeria

Eyewitnesses say protesters occupied the road very early on Monday in protest of the incessant attacks by bandits in their communities.

According to reports, the youths blocked the highway along Kurya junction and began to destroy public vehicles travelling along the road.

The youths condemned the unending insecurity and attacks which the people of the area have suffered at the hands of the bandits.

While the demonstration was ongoing, police operatives were said to have dispersed the protesters to ensure the free flow of vehicular movement on the road.

Residents of Zamfara have been living in fear as a result of the continued attacks by bandits on communities in various parts of the state.

One of the recent attacks was the killing of over 20 people when bandits stormed five communities in two local government areas of the state about two weeks ago.

The affected communities – Gabaken, Rigiya, Donroyi, Torawa, and Riwoji are located in Zurmi and Kaura Namoda local government areas of the state.
