The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has condemned the attempted assault  on the person of Emir of Zauzzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, during the inauguration of Governor Nasir el-Rufai in Kaduna.

It would be recalled that shortly after the Governor  and his deputy were sworn in, some youths among the crowd  removed their sleepers and flung them in the direction of the emir, protesting his alleged involvement in PDP campaigns in the state.

A statement by National President of the NYCN, Comrade Isah Abubakar, said that “what happened on that  day was an indication that parents have lost control of  their children, giving rise to abuse of moral standard in  the society.
