Arewa youths protest, call for Kanu’s arrest

0

A handful of Arewa youths on Wednesday staged a protest in Abuja, urging security agencies to arrest leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu, who is standing trial for treason charges before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, had been admitted to bail.

The protesters, who are members of Arewa Youth Assembly, were accompanied by policemen on horses along the Shehu Shagari Way.

This was in stark contrast to the police assault on protesters calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to resume or resign on Tuesday.

The group of northern youths marched from Unity Fountain, Maitama, through the Federal Secretariat Complex to the entrance of Three Arms Zone.

The placards-carrying youths said the unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable and upbraided Kanu for allegedly undermining the sovereignty of the nation.

The placards read, “The unity of Nigeria is non-negotiable;” and “Nnamdi Kanu is undermining the sovereignty of Nigeria.”

They marched to the junction of the Presidential Villa, where they sang for some minutes before dispersing.
