But armed policemen fired teargas canisters to disperse the angry crowd, during which two persons were reportedly injured.

Not satisfied, sources said the protesters invaded some churches along Ahmadu Bello way in the state capital, destroying their properties.

 

 

The building of Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in the area was also reportedly set on fire by the irate youths.

 

“The Catholic church was attacked and scattered while the First ECWA church beside it has been burnt. Some Christians were injured. These youths also attacked some Igbo traders and destroyed their cars.

 

“Heard they are burning shops and stealing goods currently in city centers as well. Sadly, no intervention from the armed forces,” a Sokoto resident told SaharaReporters.
