A coalition group is protesting over the attack on Kajuru Local Government Area in Kaduna state, which has led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties.
The group took to the Unity Fountain in Abuja to express concern over the siege on the community.
They accused the state governor, Nasiru El-Rufai of instigating a reprisal attack thereby calling for the release of their leaders.
Gunmen have in recent times been attacking the Kajuru area of the state, killing many and displacing over 30, 000 people.
Several communities in the area have been under heavy attack since the beginning of the year, with many linking it to an unending feud between the Adara tribe people and Fulani people.
