Speaking with SaharaReporters, one of the protesters said that residents of the area now lived in fear as security agencies in the state appear helpless.

He said the people might resort to self-defence, noting that such move may further worsen the security challenges in the country.

“Is it not shameful and embarrassing that this ugly security threat is happening daily in the home state of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the Chief Security Officer of the country?

“It’s glaring both the President and Governor Masari are failure, they have repeatedly failed us. They have to be alive to their constitutional duties of protecting the citizens,” he said.
