Two journalists and many protesters sustained injuries after the suspects struck around Kofar Famfo area of the metropolis.

The protesting youth carried placards with the inscriptions: “Arewa is Bleeding,” “Stop the Killings in the North,” “Empower SWAT to Stop Killings, Kidnappings, Rape,”.

Usaini Adamu, a member of the group, narrated how young men brandishing dangerous weapons, invaded the gathering and started attacking the members of the CNG.

“Only a few of us sustained some minor injuries because security operatives promptly intervened and dispersed them,” he said.

“We were grouping here, suddenly these thugs descended on us and started beating us. Most of us scampered for safety while some of us resisted until security agents arrived and dispersed them.

“Now the security agents have given us a cover to read our press statement and leave.”
