Tue, 03 Jul 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Maiduguri—Sporadic gunshots rent the air in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital yesterday as hundreds of mobile policemen deployed to the state to assist the military in the fight against Boko Haram took to the streets protesting non-payment of seven months allowances and promotion.

The shooting caused commotion as motorists and commuters deserted the streets of the capital city to avoid being hit by stray bullets. Consequently, the Presidency, according to the News Agency of Nigeria, yesterday summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over the protest. The protest, which also led to barricading of some major highways for over four hours, disrupted academic activities in many schools, as people scampered for safety along the busy Maiduguri-Damaturu-Kano Road where the state command headquarters is located. Consequently, such schools as Ramat Polytechnic, Kashim Ibrahim College of Education, Arabic College, Government College and Yerwa Girls Secondary Schools, among others, also failed to open for the day’s activities. Two of the teachers in the affected schools, Mallam Audu Ibrahim and Modu Isa, who spoke to Vanguard, said:
