Scores of people on Tuesday morning blocked the Zuba-Kaduna highway in Abuja to protest what they said was the excessive granting of land to the Army in the Nigerian capital.

The protesters carried placards and put a halt to movement of traffic on the busy highway.

They said they are original indigenes of Abuja and that their farmlands had been given to the army without adequate compensation.

After over an hour of protest, the protesters dispersed and the road became free again.

    Your farmlands are being given to Fulani herdsmen in the guise of giving it to the Army. Mercy will be very far from Buhari and Buratai for what they are doing to Nigerians. Propagation of fulani dominance over other tribes and peoples of Nigeria

    Once again Gwari people are made refugees in their on land. It will not be well with Buhari, Buratai and their invading army. Yeah, take lands from Gwari and hand them to Fulani.
