Leaders’ arrest: CNG declares plan to protests in 19 Northern States today

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) said it has placed all its coordinators across the 19 Northern States on alert to mobilize street protest today, Friday, over the arrest and unknown whereabouts of its national leaders.

The BOT Chairman of CNG, Nastura Ashir Shariff and the National Coordinator, Balarabe Rufa’i, were picked by suspected operatives of the Department of State Services, (DSS), after their planned press conference was prevented from taking place by security forces at the NAF Club, Kaduna.

The Coalition’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, in a statement on Thursday evening, said the whereabouts of the group leaders were still unknown.

Suleiman also said they had contacted the Kaduna State Command of the security agencies, which insisted they didn’t carry out the arrests.
