One feared dead as Violence disrupts Zamfara speaker audience with rescued Jangebe girls
NEWS DIGEST – At least one person has been killed while some have sustained injuries in Jangebe, the Zamfara community where some schoolgirls were abducted last week.
After the students regained freedom, the government took them for counselling and rehabilitation.
On Wednesday, they were brought back to the school to reunite with their family members.
Daily Trust gathered that Pandemonium broke out after anxious parents disrupted the speech of Alhaji Nasiru Muazu Magarya, Speaker of the Zamfara House of Assembly, and forcefully took their daughters away.
The schoolgirls, who arrived at the school in the evening, were seated in the examination hall and were being addressed by the speaker when the visibly disturbed parents broke in to the hall and started throwing insults at the dignitaries that were meant to address the parents and the school girls.
All speeches were disrupted and after sensing trouble, the speaker and commissioners attending the event quickly left.
Shots were fired by security operatives to disperse the crowd that was waiting outside the school.
The youths began to throw stones at the security operatives that were moving out of the community.
A young man stained blood and was seen being held by other youths at the scene.
The vehicle conveying journalists had to quickly move out of the community as the youth were pelting vehicles with stones.
Last week, some journalists who visited the school a day after the abduction were attacked.
