Zainab Naseer Ahmad, one of the conveners of protest against insecurity in Kano State, has dissociated herself from the demonstration after she was invited for questioning by the Department of State Services.

“I want to let people know that from today I’m dissociating myself from the protest that started today (Friday), I’m kindly advising my Kano people to stay away from tomorrow’s protest,” Ahmad said.

In a Facebook post after her invitation by the DSS, Ahmad said she was “worried about the safety of people and I don’t want anyone to be hurt due to such action”.

“I heard about the plans to hijack and cause chaos for some political interest. I advise us to stay at home for our safety. I was invited for a friendly discussion by the DSS. It is not about me or you rather the interest of the state,” she added, according to People’s Gazette.

Scores of youths on Friday marched across states in the North in frustration over the worsening insecurity that has beset the region.
