Some students and youth organizations converged on the northern city of Kaduna Saturday to celebrate Major Hamza Al-Mustapha’s release from prison and ask him to run for elections in 2015.

They gathered at the Murtala Square, Kaduna to honour the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late Head of State, Sani Abacha, who was incarcerated for close to 15 years for his alleged role in the murder of Alhaja Kudirat Abiola before he was acquitted by the Court of Appeal in Lagos some few months ago.

The gathering, which attracted several hundreds of people including some Kaduna based politicians, was tagged ‘Almustapha unity gathering’.

The youth chanted solidarity songs and flew banners in support of Mr. Al-Mustapha, under the watchful eyes of security officials.

Mr. Al-Mustapha, who arrived the venue at about 1:09 p.m., was visibly elated by the waiting crowd and had to be squeezed through to reach his seat.

He is yet to declare his membership of any political party although he enjoys massive support among youths in the North.

One of the organizers of the rally, Ismail Mohammed, said Mr. Al-Mustapha is being celebrated because he is considered a leader and a fighter of justice.

Muhammadu Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
