Aisha Jibrin alongside 24 others have been granted administrative bail by the Niger State Government after they were arrested during the recent protest in the Kpakungu area of Minna on Monday over hunger, hardship and rising inflation.
 
The State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hajiya Binta Mamman disclosed this on Thursday, February 8, 2024, when she briefed journalists in her office.
 
She explained that they were arrested to enable the Police to extract information for further actions, adding that following a thorough review of the circumstances that led to their arrest, they have been released to their families.
 
The Commissioner maintained that the protesters were violent, vandalizing properties which led to their arrest to curtail escalation.
 
“The protest occurred as at the time the Governor was presiding over the weekly Council meeting and had in his opening remarks emphasised the need to come up with modalities that would cushion the effect of the economic hardship on the people when he received a distress call about the protest,” she stated.
 
The Commissioner assured that the Niger State Government is committed to upholding the rights and freedom of all citizens, ensuring transparency, fairness and Justice in all legal matters.
 
She called on the public to continue to be patient and show understanding as the Government is not unmindful of the prevailing economic hardship but that drastic measures are being taken to mitigate it.
 
The Commissioner appreciated the support of the public to the present administration while urging them to sustain it.

Arresting protesting harmless hungry women while bandits and kidnappers are holding  thousands of helpless Nigerians in the forests? May thunder strike all the  police officers that laid their hands on those innocent women.

They want people to suffer in silence...my only anger is that it is this same people that will come out dancing for politicians...just look at the people suffering in kogi...they were the same people dancing in the sun when the outgoing governor that stole billions of state funds install his cousin brother as the new governor and his nephew as the chief of staff.
