SHOCKING VIDEO! Army Massacre Protesters Against Killings In Zamfara
Operatives of the Nigerian Army have shot to death several protesters in Zamfara State and arrested several others
Residents of Tsafe in Zamfara on Monday protested too many funerals in the state by men of the underworld which has gone unchecked by governmental security forces.
The protesters also called for the resignation of President Buhari and Governor Abdulaziz Yari over what they described as negligence by these constituted authorities.
The insecurity there has escalated beyond any further excuse hence the protests against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
ElombahNews gathered that many people are displaced from their homes and are helpless over the killings by the bandits.
The protesters blocked Gusau-Zaria highway linking the state to Kaduna, Kano states and Abuja as well as other passages.
They also went as far as destroying government properties.
It was at that point that heavily armed security officers confronted the protesters and opened fire killing several of them.
Watch the video of the slaughter posted by Deji Adeyanju on his Twitter handle:
"These are our fellow citizens from Zamfara, who were shot by soldiers on the orders of the CinC, for daring to protest the numerous attacks by armed men.
The death they tried to avert later came from the same man that they voted to protect them. (No audio)
