One Died As Protesting Jangebe Youths Clash With Security Operatives


One person has been killed in a clash between security operatives and some youths in Jangebe, Zamfara state.

The youths were said to have staged a protest when Zamfara government officials came to the town to reunite the abducted schoolgirls with their parents.

Suspected bandits had attacked the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe on February 26 and kidnapped 279 schoolgirls.

The girls were later released after a few days in captivity.

Residents who spoke with TheCable said the youths expressed their anger with the government and protested kidnappings and killings in the state.

“Things got out of hand when one of the security agents shot at the youths. One of the youths died, and two others sustained injury.”
