Thugs on Monday invaded the venue of the meeting for Members of the Coalition of Northern Group, security experts as well as other participants of security summit in Kaduna State.

The security summit organized by the CNG was starting at the Arewa House Auditorium, Kaduna the state capital when the armed thugs in their hundreds invaded the place.

The Summit aimed to discuss ways to achieve synergy between communities and government security and design a uniform approach to the current security situation in the North.

Participants at the meeting included retired military officers, retired police officers, religious leaders, traditional rulers, various women, youth, and trade associations.

Scores of people who gathered at the venue immediately took to their heels, some jumping through the windows.

Reacting to the development, the CNG’s Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, in a statement condemned the action of the armed thugs.

He said, “We regret to announce that armed thugs numbering hundreds were unleashed on the Arewa House venue of the security summit hosted by the Coalition of Northern Groups on Monday, December 14.

“Just as the meeting was kicking off, sponsored armed thugs stormed the auditorium after subduing the civil guards at the gate.

“They overturned tables shattered glasses, attacked the guests and officials, wounding several people and smashing vehicles parked in the premises.

“It is disturbing that a battalion of armed thugs can stroll free across the streets of central Kaduna wielding dangerous weapons without the intervention of the security. Security only arrived hours after the thugs had left.
