The Socialist Alternative (SA), has condemned the attack and arrest of peaceful protesters in Area 1 in Federal Capital Territory, Abuja today.

According to the Socialist Alternative spokesman, Dimeji Macaulay, in a press release he signed and made available to Africa Security Investigation News, disclosed that the protesters gathered under the banner of North is Bleeding to express their displeasure over the high level of insecurities in the country.
“Most especially the rate of killing in the North and continue kidnapping”.

The protesters carried banners and placards with various inscriptions such as “Buhari doesn’t care about you,” “Stop kidnapping and Killings in Nigeria”.

These protesters are important at this material time to call the attention of the Buhari government to the security crisis ravaging the North and the entire country.

“It shameful that the Police can forcefully disperse unarmed peaceful protesters that are worried about the level of insecurities in the country but can not guaranty lives and properties of Nigerians.

According to the report by Premium Times on December 12: At least 63 people were killed in various attacks by non-state actors across Nigeria last week (December 5-11).

“A review of the figure shows an over 200 percent increase when compared to the previous week when 25 people were reportedly killed. The killings continue unabated in many parts of the North West and North East.

“We call for the immediate and unconditional release of Henry Nwobodo, Moses Abraham, and two others. The only crime they committed is standing up against wanton destruction of properties and ongoing Killing by the bandits and other nonstate actors.

“For us in the Socialist Alternative, there’s need for a national discuss on how the security in Nigeria has deteriorated to this level and what Nigerians can do to defend themselves in this period.

We call for community self-defense committee by the people to confront this menace of killings”, he added.
