Following the invitation of by the DSS, Ahmad Zainab Naseer took to Facebook her Facebook page to announce that she had withdrawn from the street protest, advising others to do the same, in her words;
“I want to let people know that from today, I’m dissociating myself from the protest that started today. I’m kindly advising my Kano people to stay away from tomorrow’s (Saturday) protest.”
“I’m aware of some issues, and I’m worried about the safety of people and I don’t want anyone to be hurt due to such action.
“It could be very risky for people to protest tomorrow in Kano due to the information I heard about the plans to hijack and cause chaos for some political interest.
“I advise us to stay at home for our SAFETY. I was invited for a friendly discussion by the DSS. It is not about me or you, rather the interest of the state. Peace.” The protesters had said they wanted to draw the attention of the government to the escalating insecurity in the North.
