Gov Umahi’s attack on Obedients reprehensible

23

PRESS STATEMENT

Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State should urge the Ebonyi State Police Command to release the countless number of the *Obidient Movement* that were reportedly arrested and incarcerated by the Police under his watch and utter supervision on Saturday, September 17, 2022 over a peaceful political rally in the state.

The ruthless disruption and radical interruption with teargass and lethal force during the peaceful rally against Nigerians by the Ebonyi State Police Command and government agents is barbaric, primitive and anti-democratic.

As an executive governor and Chief Security Officer of the state, it is believed that his primary responsibility is to safeguard lives and property of citizens, uphold and respect the constitution.

If Mr. Umahi is not an enemy of constitutional democracy in Nigeria where freedom of movement, association and assembly are guaranteed in the constitution and if he was not aware of the Police brutality meted out on the peaceful rallyists as claimed, he should publicly apologise and petition the Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police for punitive and disciplinary measures.

The damage control by the state government and Ebonyi State Police Command is deceitful and unacceptable till the needful is activated to forestall future reoccurrence.
