Genocide: Police Harasses, Arrest Human Rights Lawyer Over Protest~NEWSEXTRA

Lagos based human rights lawyer,  Malcolm Omirobo has been bundled into a vehicle and into the Presidential Villa for embarking on a one-man protest demanding to see the President, Muhhamadu Buhari.

While attempting to progress into the villa, Omirhobo was approached by CSP Isah Hadejia to dissuade him from continuing with the protest and promised to transmit his demands to the appropriate quarters.

The Rights Lawyer first insisted on proceeding with his match referencing his constitutional right as a law abiding citizen to movement and access to villa as long as he remains peaceful without requiring to pre-inform any authorities of such visit.

He however later agreed to CSP Isah's pleas and began to address the media.

While speaking to members of the press, the Rights Lawyer stressed that his protest is aimed at asking the President to end what he described as genocide against Nigerians especially in the North East.

Wearing a shirt on which was inscribed "Stop the Genocide", Omirhobo lamented the killing of about 43 Nigerians which he says were working to promote Federal Government's rice sufficiency policy but were left unprotected and allowed to be gruesomely killed by members of Book Haram.

Yet to conclude his interview with the press, men of the Department of State Service led by a yet to identified (dark and average height for a man) rudely pushed away members of the press and bundled Omirhobo into a vehicle, driven him into the villa.
