Protesting NIS2000 recruits vow not to vacate Villa entrance until Buhari shows up

THE 2000 Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) recruits in 2015 by the Federal Government, who staged a peaceful protest to the entrance of Aso Villa in Abuja, on Friday, has vowed not to vacate the place, until they were being attended to by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The protesters, who fulfilled their promise by sleeping at the entrance of the Villa, vowed to remain there, until either the president or any of his aides came out to address them.

It would be recalled that NIS2000 were trained and dispersed on August 20, 2015 from their various camps, following a circular emanated from the NIS headquarters in Abuja, directing them to go home for two weeks break.

They, therefore, urged President Buhari to rescind his early decision to disperse them after their rigorous trainings, including weapons handling in their various camps, saying this might lead to formation of an insurgency.
