Outrage As Police Detain Six Protesters In Lagos by valentineuwakwe(m): 1:04pm On Feb 21
Condemnations have trailed the detention of six protesters who held a procession to mark the 120th day that soldiers fired live ammunition at #EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate.

During the shooting, some protesters reportedly died while others secured varying degrees of injuries.

The PUNCH gathered that those arrested on Saturday are Victoria Oniru, Tokunbo, Tunde Abass, Leon, Omolara Alagbala, and Adekunle.

It was learnt that the protesters had converged on Victoria Island when police officers from Maroko Police Station arrested them.

It was also learnt that the protesters were later transferred to Adeniji Adele Police Station before being detained at Panti.

In a statement, Eti-Osa Bar Forum Legal Aid Clinic and Situation Room for #OccupyLekki demanded the immediate release of the protesters.

The statement titled, ‘#120thDayMemorial: We demand the release of Victoria Oniru and others now’, was signed by the Chairman of the Forum, Oladotun Hassan; and Secretary, Ayo Ademiluyi.

It read in part, “We condemn in particular the role of Maroko Police Station, which have become notorious since the 20th day of October 2020 for police brutality and violation of fundamental human rights.

“We are also no less surprised that the Adeniji Adele Police Station, which is “formerly” the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad is still the custodial centre for the arrested Memorial Walkers. Indeed, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad is alive, well, and kicking.

“We hereby demand the immediate release of the Memorial Walkers and call on everyone to call the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, CP Hakeem Odumosu to demand their release.”

Also on Twitter, some youths expressed dissatisfaction with the protester’s arrest, demanding that #BuhariMustGo.

One of them, @Empressni, said, “Arresting, jailing and killing protesters for demanding their rights is the peak of evil. We won’t stop demanding our rights until we are totally free from oppression. Demanding for a country that works for all is not a crime, neither is it too much.”

Yung_captain @CaptYung said, “We aren’t slaves, we are humans too. We deserve a good living. We have the rights to protest. The same people who are supposed to protect us are the ones harming us.”

“When you have a president that breaks the rule of law at will and disobey court orders, the society will degenerate into anarchy,” @Lifeofblazedee tweeted.

“What is the crime of these young Nigerians who walked to honor Lekki victims yesterday?” @buzzcapital wondered.

Kunle Ajayi added, “We have a future to defend. We have a world to build. Another Nigeria is possible and #BuhariMustGo.”

“#ENDSARS demands must be met, all killer police and soldiers must face public trial, SARS and SWAT must be banned, nobody should be tortured or paraded as suspects or culprits,” @ISpeaktheT said.

“Not even the intimidation of the rotten judiciary and stringent bail conditions will discourage us from demanding good governance. Buhari either respects our existence or expects our resistance,” @BossladyFola added.

Efforts to reach the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, proved abortive.

Again

In as much I don't support this barbaric government I still don't like the way Nigerian Cary this lekki issue.

Orlu killing there's evidence.

Shitte Muslims blocking the convoy, there's evidence.

Other massacre that happened in Nigeria there's evidence.

Numbers of people came out to denounce the killing in lekki, they said they're alive that what we see is just acting it has nothing to do with lekki shooting, and Nigerian mistook it for lekki shooting.

Where is DJ switch? She claimed she saw almost 80 dead body with blood flowing every where.
Let's see the pictures of does who die in lekki or let their family come out to protest.
The IPOBIANS in Delta didn't seek for justice talk less of lekki with no atom of truth.

The mystery behind this lekki is what I don't know, even BBC later came out to apologize.

These people should just go and rest abeg. We're tired of hearing or seeing this Lekki Toll Gate thing.
Best thing to do is to get your PVC ready.
Vote a woman this time.
Remember when you do same thing you get same result. What am trying to say is, you've been electing men to rule you and the result has been negative. You vote in a man and get same result.

Try vote in a woman and watch the result changed.


The FUTURE is FEMALE

Carry gun, kidnap people, especially students, loot and raze villages and be from the north and you would be qualified for the 100s of millions of naira as amnesty bounty money.

You gotta know how to play this game.

Just as the evil and looting party you supported for 16 wasted years gave militants 500K every month for years for kidnapping, raping and bombing pipelines.
Shame!

Afonja shouted sai barber

Today Afonja farmers are running to Benin republic for shelter...

Afonja toll gate protesters are in detention...

I listened to a radio show where an elderly afonja woman called in and said the toll gate must be opened that those who don't like it should go back to their various States...
I'm sure she is from oshogbo caves

See the names of the those protesting.... undecided
