Afri-Goal foundation has condemned the arrest and clampdown on peaceful

protesters in Nigeria.

This it said is not only an abuse of power by the Nigerian police and military

but also a gross violation of the constitutionally guaranteed right of

the protesters.

According to the organization, the constitution of Nigeria recognised the right to peaceful protest and we urged the police and all other power-drunken officials to respect this fundamental right of the people.

“We demand the immediate and unconditional release of all protesters

arrested today in Lagos, Abuja, Osun, Ondo and other states where

protest action took place.”‘it said in a statement.

Afri-Goal also asked the Nigerian government under the President

Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to immediately release all those who

are currently illegally detained and those undergoing different

trumped-up charges.

“We urge the government to respect the rule of law and constitution

guiding the affairs of the country.

“Afri-Goal supports every form of peaceful protest and will go all the

way to ensure this right is respected by the government including legal

actions against the government if need be.” the statement added.
