Northerners Begins #NorthIsBleeding Protest Which If Not Quickly Addressed May Lead To #NigeriaIsBleeding Protest

 

 

With the growing insecurity in Nigeria especially with the growing activities of bandits, some Northerners have begun #NorthIsBleeding protest.

 

The activities of bandits in Nigeria especially in Northern Nigeria have become a growing concern as it has constantly threatened the lives and properties of Nigerians.

 

As a result of this growing insecurity in the North, a teeming number of some Northerners have begun coordinated online protests seeking the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari. Besides this, the aggrieved people also trooped the streets of Abuja, Bauchi, Zamfara, Katsina and Sokoto States few days ago to register their grievances with the theme, “#NorthIsBleeding.

 

Recall that the memorable #EndSARS nationwide protests against the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police started online in a similar manner and later excalated because the issues were not quickly addressed.

 

 

As it had happened, in early October 2020, the#EndSARS protests against SARS brutality of innocent Nigerians first started as a matter of just social media platforms. But in a matter of days, it quickly graduated from a virtual affair to a concrete one that saw millions of Nigerians storm the streets of many part of the country to demonstrate for days. Although, in the course of it, the FG bowed to the pressure of the protesters by scrapping SARS, the truth of the alleged massacre of some of the protesters at Lekki which was the Zenith of the protests is still being debated.

Truly, if the protests was taken seriously by the government at its infant stage and quickly addressed, the destructions of lives and property that later got out of hand would not have occurred.

 

The matter of #NorthIsBleeding protest should be timely addressed by the government before it spreads across Nigeria, and becomes a #NigeriaIsBleeding protest.
