Rights Activist Picked up by DSS While on Protest March to Presidential Villa

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

While attempting to progress into the villa, Omolori 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 march referencing his constitutional right as a law abiding citizen to free movement and access to the 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 do something as regards to what he described as genocide against Nigerians especially in the North East.

Wearing a shirt on which was inscribed "Stop the Genocide", Omirhobor 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 Boko Haram.

He accused President Muhammadu Buhari of complacency in the reported killings by Boko Haram terrorists in the north east and armed bandits in other parts of the country.

He argued that President Buhari should have ensured adequate protection of the 43 farmers who according to him were working in tune with government’s dream of rice sufficiency in the country.

However, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has clarified that the Federal Government remains committed to protecting the lives and property of Nigerians and its territory.
