The protest brings a strange religious unity to Kano residents.
In kano a covenant has just been announced by the protest leaders that the muslim protesters shall protect all non-muslims and escort them to their places of worship and vice-versa. They vowed to resist any attempt to use religion to divide them. A register has just been opened. The police are behaving well. Pls share
Police harassment has been always been a problem in Nigeria. The situation is worse for the raging protests. On Day two of the protest, one protester was shot dead by the police in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state.
In Abuja, on the first day of protests, 12 protesters were arrested and branded criminals. In Kano, the harassment continued.
Police arrests several youth and about 7 journalist in #Kano student protest. #occupynigeria
Spending the night at the protest ground is historical and hailed by other protesters in other parts of the nation.
Successful protest in Kano. Succeeded in stopping hoodlums from taking advantage of it. Kudos to Students of Bayero University Kano and Kano State Polytechnic. Its been a fastastic outing so far. Policemen were also cooperative and mature. I guess they are realizing the 1 billion naira voted for GEJ to feed will not feed their families.
