Protesters have stormed the National Assembly in Abuja, demanding justice for the victims of a drone strike that killed over 90 villagers in Kaduna State on Sunday.

The protesters, led by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) North West Zone and the Arewa Youth Movement, besieged the entrance gate for over two hours, chanting slogans and demanding the resignation of the Minister of Defence, Abubakar Badaru.

Recall that the drone attack on Sunday, which reportedly occurred during a Maulud celebration in Tudun Biri village, also left over 60 people injured.

The military also admitted responsibility for the incident.

Addressing the media, NYCN North West Zone leader Nasir Ishaku condemned the killing of innocent Nigerians and demanded a probe into the incident.

“We are here today to demand justice for the victims of this senseless attack,” Ishaku said. “The killing of innocent Nigerians, especially in the Northern part of the country, cannot be tolerated any more.”

Ishaku also criticised the Minister of Defence, accusing him of being incompetent and incapable of handling the security situation in the country.

“The security situation in Nigeria has been deteriorating ever since Mr. Badaru was appointed Minister of Defence,” Ishaku said. “We are calling on him to either wake up to his responsibilities or resign.”
