The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the armed thugs attacked the peaceful protesters on Thursday at NEPA roundabout in Kaduna, but were quickly dispersed by security personnel deployed to protect the protesters.

As the police used teargas to disperse the rampaging thugs, many of the protesters scampered to safety. Some of the thugs were also arrested by the police.

Daniel John, one of the protesters, described the incident as “very unfortunate”, adding that although no one was injured, they were forced to suspend the procession for the day.

“We were at NEPA roundabout and about to be addressed by our chairman, when the heavily armed thugs in their numbers arrived and began to wield knives and sticks while others throw stones at us,” he said.

“We were lucky security personnel were with us, who engaged the thugs and manage to disperse them and arrest some of them.”

Another protester, Fatima Abdulhamid, thanked the police and other security personnel for displaying high level of professionalism by quickly responding to the threat and overrunning the thugs.
