National Day Of Mourning: Civil Society Groups Protest Against Rising Insecurity

A coalition of 128 civil society groups had called for protests nationwide on May 28 and 29.

Some concerned civil society groups have taken to the streets across Nigeria to protest against rising cases of kidnapping in the country.

According to them, the action is in response to insecurity across the country. 

In Lagos, the national day of mourning was commemorated to remember victims of violent killings across the country.

The protesters used the occasion as an avenue to demand accountability in the provision of security and welfare for Nigerian citizens.

They moved to the Lagos State House of Assembly to submit their 6-point demand to the lawmakers, including their petition. 

Supporters have described Friday’s protest it as the commemoration of a National Day of Mourning and Remembrance of Victims of Mass Atrocities. 

They will again on May 29 attend Democracy Day activities to protest against the perceived poor state of Nigeria’s democracy.
