Protesters comprising of women and youths wearing black and carrying green leaves march to the Plateau government house on Tuesday to register their anger over the recent killings in the state.
However, the protesters became angry after they were told that Governor Simon Bako Lalong was not around as he was said to have accompanied Senate president Bukola Saraki to the Jos University Teaching to commiserate with injured victims of the attacks.
Angered by his absence, the youths reportedly smashed the glass doors of the government house administrative block and smashed some cars including those of journalists.
Security agents reportedly shot in the air to disperse them as attempts by the governor’s director of press and public affairs, Samuel Emmanuel Nanle, to appease them failed.
