In a show of displeasure against banditry in their communities, angry youths from Turare, Marke and Dogon Ruwa villages in Dutsin-ma Local Government Area of Katsina State early on Thursday morning blocked Dutsin-ma – Kankara highway. With the aid of trees, stones and worn out tyres, the protesters reportedly blocked the highway while chanting songs depicting their displeasure.
The development reportedly prevented many commuters from making use of the highway in the morning.

One of the youths who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “We are tired of activities of the bandits in our communities. We blocked the highway to show our displeasure over insecurity here. We want the authorities to be aware of our plight and come to our rescue.”
According to eyewitnesses, a combined team of police and other security operatives later cleared the road and restored normalcy on the highway.
However, it could not be ascertained whether any arrests were made.
