Hundreds of women in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State have blocked Gusau-Kaduna road to protest against incessant killings and attacks by bandits, despite security measures said to be taken by the government.
Gusau-Kaduna road links the state to several other states both in the North and the South.
The women carried their children and belongings sat on the road, refusing to allow the motorists to pass through the road.
This resulted in traffic and hundreds of motorists were stranded.
One of the women, who gave her name as Rukayat, told our correspondent that they are protesting because the bandits were always attacking and raping them and there was no action taken by the security agents to protect them.
She said, “we are protesting to express our disappointments over the failures of the security agencies to protect us in this area, we are calling on government to please come to our aid.”
Another woman, Talatu Sani, said, she left her village of Cediya because the bandits used to go to the village to rape women and steal their food and animals.
“I have to join the protest because the authorities are not doing anything to protect us from this hopeless situation.”
It is interesting to know that there is no serious improvement to the security situation despite the security measures by the state government.
