Atiku Condemns Arrest Of #OccupyLekkiTollgate Protesters (Updated: 2 years ago)


Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the arrest of #OccupyLekkiTollgate protesters by men of the Nigeria Police Force.

About 30 #OccupyLekki protesters including popular comedian Debo Adebayo, also known as Mr Macaroni, were reportedly arrested on Saturday.

Reacting to this development, the former Presidential candidate wrote:

“The 1999 Nigerian constitution, as amended (Section 40) guarantees the right of citizens to peaceful protest. The courts have also affirmed that right. Anything contrary to that is not acceptable and stands condemned.

“It is the security agents’ responsibility to provide a secured conducive environment for citizens to protest peaceably in line with constitutional provisions and the African Charter on Human rights.”
