As a result of the planned protest by a group of women foundation over rising cases of killings and rape in the country, the Nigerian Government has deployed armed mobile policemen at the entry point of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The armed policemen were reportedly stationed at strategic locations along Kubwa-Abuja expressway.
Police water canon trucks were also sighted in different locations in the city center in the bid to disrupt the planned protest on Thursday.
Several groups have lamented on the deplorable security situation across the country, especially in the Northern part of the country, and have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to rise to his constitutional responsibility and end the killings.
The Nigerian Government has become intolerant of criticisms by stifling dissenting and stop protests against injustice and oppression from holding.
