Police Invasion of CDHR and sealing up of Sahara Reporters Offices: Darker days ahead
Early this morning, the police and other security forces invaded the national office of the CDHR and Sahara Reporters Offices, in another desperate attempt to forcefully stop planned peaceful agitation against detention of activists without trial scheduled to start by 11am this morning.
The CDHR is a human rights organization and the Sahara Reporters is a media agency. That their offices could be invaded and sealed in this Gestapo like manner this morning in anticipation of protest, only confirms that the civil rights fought for over the years are crudely been removed by Buhari’s APC government.
The right to speech, associate, protest and even to think are no more guaranteed under this neo- regime.
However, our agitation for the immediate release of Omoyele Sowore, Agba Jalingo, Abayomi Olawale (Mandate) and all others currently being held in Buhari detention centres, and for the revolutionary transformation of the country continues.
