Protesters on Wednesday, December 6, invaded the National Assembly building in Abuja, over the killing of several innocent citizens by a military drone on Sunday, December 6.

For more than two hours, demonstrators surrounded the National Assembly entry gate, demanding justice for the bombing victims and putting pressure on the Minister of Defense Abubakar Badaru to fulfill his obligations or step down.

The Nation reported on Monday that over 90 villagers of Tudun Biri in Rigasa District of Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State were killed when a drone of the Nigerian Army bombed a gathering of civilians who were celebrating Maulud Sunday night.

According to locals, the event also resulted in over sixty injuries.

The military later acknowledged the bombing and provided further information.

Addressing reporters, the leader of the protesters under the aegis of National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) North West Zone, and Arewa Youth Movement, Nasir Ishaku, demanded justice for the victims.

He declared it intolerable and said innocent Nigerians could no longer be killed, particularly in the country’s north, “daily.”

To rescue the nation, Ishaku asked the National Assembly to look into the massacre that occurred in Kaduna on Sunday and to act decisively.

He said: “For those who have eyes to see, let them see well, and those who have ears to hear, let them listen attentively. Nigeria is not well because Nigerians are being killed day by day.

“The security situation in the country keeps deteriorating since his (Badaru) inception as Minister of Defence. These two organisations have a moral obligation to express our grievances because Nigeria is in shambles in terms of the security of lives and property, most especially, in Northern Nigeria.

“Nigeria keeps losing members of the armed forces which include the army, the air force, the navy, and members of the Nigeria Police Force. Our university students are still in captivity and no one knows their whereabouts. These are the clear indications that the minister is incompetent to handle that sensitive ministry. Therefore, he should wake up to his responsibilities or resign.”
