BREAKING: #NorthIsBleeding Protest Hits Abuja As Police Arrest Protesters


It was learnt that policemen in the FCT harassed some of the protesters and arrests had also been made

According to SaharaReporters, the #NorthIsBleeding protest, organised against the continuous insecurity and killings ravaging the northern states under the Muhammadu Buhari regime, has hit the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

It was also reported that policemen in the FCT harassed some of the protesters and arrests had also been made.

Since last week, using the hashtag #NorthIsBleeding, some Nigerians from the Northern part of the country took to Twitter, a microblogging and social networking service, to demand Buhari’s resignation over his failure to combat increasing insecurity in the region.

They had, among other things, condemned Buhari’s visit to Lagos State for the book launch of a political ally a few days after bandits burnt to ashes over 45 travellers in Sokoto State.

The protests had enveloped Kano, and a few other northern states before spreading to the FCT.
