Protesters Block Abuja Highway: “You Are Giving All Our Land To Nigerian Army!”

by Amuni Adamu,

Scores of people on Tuesday morning blocked the Zuba-Kaduna highway in Abuja to protest what they said was the excessive granting of land to the Army in the Nigerian capital.

The protesters carried placards and put a halt to movement of traffic on the busy highway.

They said they are original indigenes of Abuja and that their farmlands had been given to the army without adequate compensation.

After over an hour of protest, the protesters dispersed and the road became free again.
