Nigeria president Buhari violation of human right may be ending very soon as participants at the ongoing National Human Rights Summit in Abuja has issued a warning to the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari that citizens may be forced to resort to self help if he continues to violet people’s rights in the country.
The warning was issued after operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) invaded Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday to rearrest pro-democracy campaigner and journalist, Omoyele Sowore, less than 24 hours after he was released on bail by the agency.
One of the participant at the event, Queen Agba, said, “It goes against the constitution and security agencies cannot arrest within the curt premises especially when a case is ongoing.
“I think is a breach in law and something that need to be addressed and if we don’t do that on time we may not be able to handle the impact in future.”
Eze Onyekpere also said, “It shouldn’t have happened in the first place and our expectation is that the judiciary should come together. The media and citizens should come together to simply say enough is enough.
“If we allow this to continue, we shall soon be in the mortal danger of having constitution abrogated.”
Addressing same issue another participant, Afolabi Olajuwon, said, “It was a very terrible situation and experience in the Nigerian context. If this persists, it can turn to self defence where every man can violate the rules and do whatever they like. They can take the laws into their hands because this is not democracy.”
This is not the first time Buhari is violating human right in the country. The ex-military head of state needs to be reminded that he is not running a military regime.
