Northern Nigeria On Fire As Hundreds Of Armed Police Officers, Soldiers, Roll Out Armoured Tankers Against Defenceless Civilians

There was a heavy security presence in Kaduna, on Thursday, to clamp down on the protest by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.

The Labour Union organised the march to protest the sack of thousands of workers by the Kaduna State Government.

About 24 Police vans, two armoured cars, 10 special motorcycles, and hundreds of Police Officers and Soldiers, were on the streets on Thursday, with many stationed about 40 meters from the Labour House Gate, along Independence Way.

Despite the security presence, Labour Leaders gathered with flags and placards singing union slogans at the gate of the Labour House, which is the NLC Secretariat in the State.

“We are ordered by the CP (Commissioner of Police) not to allow the protesters to cross Independence Way”, a Police Officer who took a position in front of the Labour gate said.

“We are restricting them to the premises of Labour House”, he added.

Labour leaders however, remained defiant.

“We will push them (security) away and proceed with our protest. They cannot intimidate us.

“So, Nigeria has this Military might, and the country is still facing security challenges”, one of the workers disclosed.

Mukhtar Aliyu, Spokesperson of the Police in the State, said they are also embarking on a show of force around major flashpoints in the metropolis.
