Truck load of armed policemen disrupt protest against the killings in Southern Kaduna.
The protesters cancelled the protest after the police clamped down on the conveners.
The protesters on Saturday converged at the refinery junction in Kaduna with the tag, ‘Southern Kaduna Volunteers Forum’.
They were about to begin the protest when armed policemen, who arrived in 20 vans, attempted to stop the demonstration.
The police arrested three of the protesters and others sent away from the venue, after a clash with the police.
The incident however forced the organisers to cancel the protest in order to avoid loss of lives.
Jamal, one of the protesters said on Twitter:
Over 200 policemen deploy to stop the southern Kaduna protest. Yeah, I said 200 police officer.
Yet these people are being killed every day and the commissioner of police said was we don’t have enough men to fight the killers Yet you have 200 to stop a protest
