Adamu Garba Condemns Arrest Of OccupyLekkiTollGate Protesters by envoymedia: 5:39pm On Feb 13
Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba has condemned the arrest of peaceful protesters by men of the Nigeria Police at the Lekki toll gate on Saturday, IgbereTV reports.

Some #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters stormed the toll gate today, to protest against the planned reopening of the Lekki toll gate following alleged killing of protesters on October 20, 2020.

However, officers at the scene, were seen in trending videos arresting and putting some protesters in a Black Maria.

Speaking in reaction to the arrest, Garba argues that so long as they are not causing inconvenience to other citizens, then they have the right to protest peacefully as permitted by law.

Taking to his Twitter account, the APC chieftain wrote;

”In as much as the #EndSARS protesters are not blocking the way for other citizens to move along the #Lekkitollgate, the law permits them the right to peaceful protest

”After all, that’s a tenet of democracy which we practice

”All arrested protesters should be released immediately”

Adamu Garba is deceiving himself, he is acting as if his master in aso rock did not know anything about what happen at lekki tollgate today or Who ask lying Muhammed to go and tell us that they will deal decisively with anybody that come to lekki tollgate to protest today.

Not allowing folks to exercise their right to expression is dangerous & using your monopoly of power to silence your people only emboldens a similar reaction. Check Arab Spring, heard of Gaddafi? This govt has no ability to be circumspect.

If he opposes the protest Nigerians complain, if he supports them Nigerians still complain. We are our worst enemy, we are never objective.

You should know that there are people who support the right to protest but oppose trampling on other people's rights to free movement - it's not rocket science
