Nigeria Cops have crushed up quite a lot of Finish SARS protesters.
This occurred 4 days after the Inspector Common of Police, Mohammed Adamu, warned in opposition to use of power.
Adamu acknowledged that “the basic proper of freedom of expression, meeting, and motion should at all times be upheld and guarded by the police”.
The IGP’s warning adopted a number of pictures and movies exhibiting battering of residents.
A few of these attacked on Monday have been carrying the Nigerian flag.
The assumption was that anybody carrying the nation’s image can be spared of assault by safety operatives.
That has now been discarded by overzealous personnel.
The assault by the Police occurred in not less than two areas of the nation’s capital and Nyanya.
Nyanya is a city in Nasarawa State close to the border with the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Take a look at Police Officers beating peaceable protesters in Abuja. They’ve simply flags and cardboard papers but they’re being crushed the identical police males the IGP apparently stated he ordered to not assault peaceable protesters. That is shameful.#IGPMustResign #AbujaProtests #EndSARS pic.twitter.com/5u5u76qlEo
