The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited one of the conveners of the #NoMoreBloodShed protest in Kano, Zainab Nasir Ahmed.
The protest was organisedd to draw the attention of government over escalating insecurity in the North, following the gruesome killing of over 42 travellers in a bus in Sokoto.
Ms Ahmed confirmed the invitation to online newspaper, DAILY NIGERIAN, saying she was on her way to honour the invitation.
“They just called me on phone and told me that my attention was needed at the DSS office as a result of the protest we held today. I am on may way to honor the invitation as a law abiding citizen,” Ahmed was quoted to have said.
Earlier today, Youths stormed the streets of some Northern cities over the widespread killings in the region.
Although Nigeria is currently facing a high wave of insecurity, bandits and terrorists have stepped up attacks in the north despite efforts of the government to contain them.
The protesters, who are wielding placards, have organised the protests simultaneously in Kano, Bauchi, Zamfara, Sokoto States and Abuja.
Chanting songs of peace, the protesters called on President Muhammadu Buhari and governors to show more interest in tackling insecurity.
Following the protest, President Muhammadu Buhari deployed a high-level security team to the troubled Katsina and Sokoto states.
The President made the disclosure in a statement posted on his Facebook page.
