The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested protesters in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on the morning of yesterday.

The “Enough is Enough” protesters were dressed in black attires and held different placards bearing messages such as ” We need peace”, “End genocide in Kaduna“, “End killings in Southern Kaduna”, “We cannot continue like this”, “Southern Kaduna lives matter”, “Government has failed us”, “allow us to defend ourselves if you can’t” among others.

Efforts made to speak with the leader of the protest proved unsuccessful as it was suspected that the leader was among those arrested by the police.

In his words, “Yes, some of them were arrested because they did not inform us about the procession”.

“I cannot tell you how many of them were picked now but I will get back to you later”, He continued.

However, Hanoky Media interacted with some of the protesters who vowed to continue their protests until their colleagues are released from police custody and the Kaduna State Government put measures in place to end the killings in the state.
