Insecurity: Zamfara residents protest, block road

On Thursday, people in several Tsafe Local Government Area villages in Zamfara State demonstrated against the continuous banditry activities that have ravaged the area for over a decade.

It was determined that the demonstration was peaceful because no one was murdered and no property damage was reported.

According to Alhaji Musa Abdulahi, a commuter, the route between Gusau, the state capital, and Zaria was completely stopped for more than five hours as furious protestors refused to open the roadways to allow people to freely pass.

” I and many other passengers were stranded as most of the commuters resorted to plying tricycles to reach Gusau after several hours of appeals to the protesters which they refused to listen to.

“Three of us therefore hired a tricycle with the sum of N1,500 each to ensure we get to Gusau,” he said.

He further explained that the constant bandit attacks in all communities of the LGA and the absence of security agencies during these attacks were the causes of the protest.

“As at the time we left Tsafe town around 5:40 pm the protesters were standing red signals that they would not leave the highway until security operatives assure them of confronting the named bandits and securing their entire Local Government Area,” he added.
