Revolution Now: 60 Arrested In Cross River, Lagos, Others — Sowore’s Lawyer by olayemioshiyemi: 8:02am On Aug 06, 2019
A human rights lawyer, Mr Inibehe Effiong, has said no fewer than 60 protesters may have been arrested by the police in the states where the #RevolutionNow protest took place on Monday.

Effiong, who is also the National Legal Adviser of the African Action Congress, lamented that the clampdown on the protesters was an ominous sign of greater danger to come, adding that Nigeria was no longer practising democracy.

He said, “In Ogun State alone, we learnt that about 20 protesters were arrested, while nine were arrested in Lagos. In Cross Rivers, Ondo, Kwara, Nigerians were also arrested for demanding their rights.

“The militarisation is unwarranted. There is no need for this primitive deployment of state power to quell an ordinary civic response to the situation in the country. The government, the police and the army did not need to do this.

“Even the manner they went about it clearly shows that Nigeria is not a democratic country. When you have soldiers and policemen being heavily mobilised with armoured personnel carriers, AK-47 and other assault rifles; and they are opening bullets on people, using tear gas and arresting protesters who were just singing.

“Look at the Lagos protest for example. We were not even disrupting traffic flow. We were just at one spot when those people swoop on us. For me, I find it troubling and it is an ominous sign of the danger the country is facing. It also shows the deterioration of democratic values. It is a way of telling the international community that Nigeria is back to the dark era of censorship, intolerance and totalitarianism.

I'm happy that no south east state participated in this Yoruba Protest .

Sowore will rot in jail because I know Tinubu will abandon him because of his 2023 ambition.

Cross Rivers fell my hands in this. Oya see am. Just See am. Didn't anyone teach them the history of avoiding anything Afonjas are doing. Just watch how they'll abandon the men and women that were arrested in CR. Before we know it, their media would start tagging it as Cross River's revolution. SMH. Learn from history jor. Anyway, I pray for the CR people arrested. May God save una.

As for rest of south and east, applause for avoiding the bullshit. A huge Applause. Let Yorubas deal with their next level by themselves. After all to quote their 2015 statement "Buhari is the Messiah sent by God to save Niggeria."

Let them enjoy their Messiah
#sai Buhari
#next level grin grin grin grin

Afonja's titled Savior of Niggeria well done ooo

You are openly accusing someone of Bigotry. But people from your ethnic extraction championed this govt into existence despite his incompetences from the past, you guys repackaged him and called him reformed Democrat just only so presidency will shift to one of your own. Now the poverty has gone round and affected your people, you people now have mouth to talk about Bigotry.

It's as if the term BIGOTRY is restricted to only people from the Igbo extraction in Nigeria. Lol!

Nigeria is going down and its all your people's fault for supporting a failure instead of GEJ. Admit you made a mistake for once

I am surprised that while people were protesting against bad governance, #WhereWasYourRevolution was trending...


Are they saying we should never complain about bad and tyrannical governance




It's safe to say being divisive is a constant in naija..

I don't know but I think the reason for this arrest is because, we are not one. Our reasoning is differences as a nation. It could be a certain ethnic majority is working out to suppress the minority.
