Residents of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, in their numbers converged at the Abuja Unity Fountain, to protest the insecurity and ineffectiveness of the security agencies in limiting the waves of kidnapping and killings ravaging the city.
Speaking on the platform of the Guardians of Democracy and Development Initiative (GDDI), the aggrieved youths wondered why despite several intelligence reports about planned attacks on Abuja, including the attack on Kuje Prison, where sixty-six terrorists commander and kingpins were freed.
The group blamed the Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno for incompetence and not doing anything to avert the attacks.
Consequently, one of the leaders of the group, Comrade Danesi Momoh, said “President Muhammadu Buhari should, with immediate effect, sack the duo of the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno (Rtd) and the Defence Minister, Maj. Gen. Bashir Salihi Magashi (Rtd), for their ineptitude in handling the security challenges destroying the country”.
On his part, the co-convener of the group- Comrade Igwe Udeh said it is high time for the government and relevant authority to do the needful for a more peaceful society.
Meanwhile, the protesters, who moved round the streets of Abuja to register their apprehension over the serial killings, abductions and insecurity in the country, displayed several placards asking the President to relieve Generals Monguno and Magashi of their duties and replace them with competent persons.
