In their usual manner, police had to resort to lies to explain away their unjustified show of shame in Abuja when for three consecutive days they unleashed a storm of fury on peaceful protesters legitimately demanding the immediate release of their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, who is being held illegally in defiance of a valid court order.
The Police, shamelessly said in a statement by its Abuja spokesperson, Anjuguri Manzah, that the protesters were violent and that they “recovered some bottles of improvised petrol-bomb, stones and catapult used by members of the Movement to attack police operatives and damage police operational vehicles.”
However, it is very easy to put to lie these wild allegations as there were many independent activists, observers and journalists who followed the procession and witnessed all that happened.
Furthermore, there is video coverage of the entire procession and the police entirely unprovoked attacks.
