Following the #EndSARS protests against police brutality and human rights violations, Nigerians across the country staged a prayer walk on Saturday seeking divine intervention on the state of the nation.
In Minna, youths under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Group embarked on a peaceful protest to demand an end to insecurity in Nigeria.
A co-convener of the protest, Mohammed Etsu decried the spate of killings by bandits in many parts of the state, and the seeming inability of security agencies in providing a lasting solution to the problem.
They called on the government to listen to them because the future of Nigeria lies on their shoulders, and they do not want to inherit a country that has been bastardized.
Carrying placards, they converged on the Minna City Gate before embarking on a long walk to the popular Mobil Roundabout chanting songs of freedom.
Speaking to Channels Television, the youths asked both the Federal and State Governments to address the problems of bad road infrastructure, epileptic power supply among other issues.
In Rivers, residents of the state converged at Garrison in Port Harcourt Local Government Area to pray for Nigeria and against all forms of brutality by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The gathering however didn’t start at the earlier scheduled venue, Pleasure Park.
