Coalition of FCT Indigenous Groups has patnered with Indigenes of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to protest alleged killings of their people by the Nigerian Army.
NNU gathered that on Tuesday, the indigenes took to the National Assembly complex to vent their displeasure, calling on the lawmakers to help address the issues from further escalation.
Although, no lawmaker addressed the protesters; instead, security details shut the gate at the entrance of the legislative building, causing a disruption of vehicular movement in and out of the assembly.
The group had staged an earlier protest on Thursday, April 11, 2019, at the National Assembly and forwarded a letter addressed to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, alleging that their properties were being stolen.
They also claimed that their lands were being acquired and farm crops being destroyed by ‘invaders’.
