Barely two days after a scanty protest in the Rigasa area of Kaduna state against Uba Sani, a lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the Senate, the purported leaders of the protests have narrated how they were hired.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that one of the youth leaders who simply gave his name as Musa Uban Daba narrated how they were asked to lead the protests with a promise of motorcycles and some money.
Declining to mention the names of their sponsors, Musa insisted they were deceived with fake promises that have not been met and regretted their action.
It was gathered that the second leader, Ahmed Ahmed, on his part, confirmed Musa's claims and apologised to the senator, adding that they had high hopes of getting motorcycles to work for livelihoods.
"We are jobless young men that are vulnerable and readily available for manipulation by politicians. We were hoping on the motorbikes so our lives would change but they are all fake promises.
"The man should forgive us but leaders should also begin to focus on the welfare of restive young people who are jobless."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Uba Sani attributed the rate of bandit attacks and kidnappings in the state to the deplorable condition of federal roads, especially on Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria roads.

The senator while seizing the opportunity to bare his mind at the project update and town hall meeting of stakeholders on the rehabilitation of Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano dual carriageway, expressed anger at the delay in rehabilitation of the roads.
The meeting, which was organised by the federal ministry of works, hosted by the Kaduna state government and chaired by the chief of staff to the president, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, held at the Kaduna state University.
