Nasarawa Supreme Court judgement: Court remands 30 protesting women

A Chief Magistrate Court in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, has ordered the remand of 30 protesting women at the Correctional Centre over allegations of violence and destruction of public facilities.


Protests erupted in the state capital in response to the Supreme Court’s recent judgement upholding the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule.

The Nigeria Police arrested and arraigned the women on Friday afternoon, accusing them of engaging in acts of violence, blocking roads, and destroying public property.

The protesters reportedly caused heavy traffic as roads were blocked, and some of them set tyres ablaze.

The court also remanded eight other male suspects at the correctional centre.

The male suspects face charges related to blocking roads, public disturbance, and destruction of public facilities.

The identities of those in custody are yet to be disclosed.

The court has adjourned the matter for a hearing on their bail applications scheduled for Monday, January 21.
