SNG Calls off "Victory Rally"
The Save Nigeria Group(SNG) has called off the "victory rally" scheduled for Saturday at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park in Lagos.
The decision is based on the unprecedented terror attack in Kano in which several police formations and other institutions were rocked by bomb blasts with unspecified number of deaths recorded 24 hours to a planned protest in the city.
This tragic occurrence has made us to take more seriously intelligence reports we have received to the effect that militants have been posted to Lagos and lodged in various hotels with alleged instructions to infiltrate our gathering in order to cause mayhem that would lead to loss of lives.
As we do not want to give the blood of the people we are fighting for to those who are bloodthirsty,we have taken the decision to stay off the street tommorow.
We enjoin our people to remain calm and await further directives in the days ahead .
May God console all the families who have lost dear relatives in the Kano bomb attacks.

Yinka Odumskin.
Save Nigeria Group
