NCFront Condemns Use Of Live Ammunition On Sowore, Other Peaceful Protesters

…..Demands Immed Apology And  Sack Of Police Officer, Who Opened Fire On Sowore

The National Consultative Front, NCFront jointly led by Rt Hon Ghali Naaba and Prof Pat Utomi is compelled to condemn in the strongest terms the use of live ammunition on Mr Omoyele Sowore leading other unarmed Protesters to express their dissatisfaction over the growing spate of insecurity and anarchy in the country

It has been reported that Mr Omoyele Sowore is currently receiving treatment after being shot in his hip by a detachment of police operatives dispatched by the police commissioner of Abuja to stop the peaceful protest of the civil society Activists

The NCFront wishes to state that the police should have outgrown this sort of savagery and barbaric action in handling peaceful protests to a more professional way of guiding defenceless citizens’ protests. 

The shooting of defenceless and unarmed Citizens and Civilians is most unacceptable to the NCFront and the Front shall continue to resist it until the police purge itself of such cruel methods of engaging protesting Civilians

To this end, we demand an immediate Apology and Sack of the trigger happy officer, who opened fire on Sowore and other for this needless and unprovoked gun attack as well as the best of urgent medical treatment and Compensation for Sowore and other Activists who sustained varying degrees of injuries from police attack and disruption of the peaceful protest.
