Buhari’s govt, police to face legal action over alleged attacks on Peter Obi supporters
Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has threatened to drag the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the Nigeria Police Force to court over alleged attacks on supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Press reports that there have been reports of attacks on Obi supporters, who are popularly called Obidients, in some parts of the country during their recent rallies.
Recall that on September 17, some top politicians allegedly ordered the Ebonyi State Police Command to stop the supporters who converged at Pastoral Centre, Nkwagu Ugbala Ground Arena, People's Club, and other locations to drum up support for the Ex-Anambra State governor.
The state governor, Dave Umahi, had, in spite of that, his involvement in the alleged attack.
Similarly, a social media user, Obi Flag Boy, at Oshodi, Lagos, on Sunday for supporting the Labour Party candidate.
Reacting, SERAP, in a tweet on its verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, vowed to seek redress in court over the alleged attacks, saying everyone has the right to “participation and assembly”.
