Gunshots were fired by the Police to disperse residents who were protesting against the rising cost of living in Minna, the Niger State capital.


As early as 7am on Monday, Feb. 5, a group of women blocked Minna-Bida Road at the popular Kpakungu roundabout to express their grievances over the rising cost of food items .


They were later joined by men, who stopped vehicles from moving.


Efforts by the police to control the crowd almost resulted in violence as protesters asked police to leave, forcing the police to fire several shots in the air.
