The Police in Adamawa State stopped a peaceful protest organized by the state’s Christian Association of Nigeria to draw the government’s attention to the protection of human lives regardless of culture and religion.
The protest which was called by the CAN Chairman of Adamawa State, Bishop Stephen Mamza, on Wednesday drew a large turnout from Christians who trooped to St. Theresa Catholic Church, the venue initially planned for the take-off of the procession.
Shortly before the take-off of the protest , Mamza told the congregants who had turned up for the protest that the police had canceled it.
Mamza said the parade would have been a great opportunity for the church to present its petition to the State Governor, Mohammed Jibrilla, who will then pass it on to President Muhammadu Buhari, but he was refused the permission for the peaceful procession.
