Residents of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara state are currently protesting along Gusau-Zaria road over incessant killings in the state.
The protesters who are mostly youths and women have taken to streets blocking all roads as well as destroying campaign posters and billboards of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The protesters are also calling for the resignation of President Buhari and Governor Abdulaziz Yari over what they described as negligence by these constituted authorities.
Similarly, it was reliably gathered that Tsafe Local Government secretariat was razed down by the protesters, in an attempt to register their grievances to the government.
Reacting to the spate of killings in the state, the Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, blamed northern elites for keeping unending silence on the carnage, enumerating three factors as responsible for the leaders’ inactions.
Mr Sani, through his Twitter handle, said: “Northern political elites are silent on the frequent killings and kidnappings in the north out of any of these three reasons; FEAR not to be seen opposing the Government;BELIEF that the President is doing his best; INDIFFERENCE because it’s the poor that are dying.”
