Usman Barambu, the president of NANS, said in a statement on Thursday that the demonstration, which would start on Monday, will last indefinitely until Mohammed is freed.

NANS declared that it had used all of its options for consultation and consolidation and would now address the situation differently.

"Sequel to the exhaustion of all options available to us before confrontation in seeking the freedom of one of us who was arrested in questionable manner, tortured, molested, harassed and detained by agents of government, you are hereby notified of the decision of the leadership of NANS to proceed on a nationwide protest.

“We have consulted and consolidated which yielded no desirable results in seeking the freedom of Mohammed, hence, the protest shall commence as follows: Monday, December 5, 2022, nationwide.
