An angry mob of policemen numbering 200 yesterday in Abuja descended fiercely on protesters led by the Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network and former member of the House of Representatives, Dino Melaye.
The protesters were protesting against what they termed, “Impunity in Rivers State and Abuse of Office by the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Joseph Mbu.”
“Dutiful” Nigerian policemen fired tear-gas canisters at the protesters causing a stampede which resulted in many slumping and fainting.
Mr Melaye while describing the terrible situation of things in the country said, “We must do everything to rescue this country from the hands of these economic canker worm. There is intimidation, incessant arrests, threats and assassination attempts on my life. But for me, I am resolute because the battle to deliver this country from economic canker worms, financial vultures and inept leadership, as I have repeatedly said is a battle of no retreat, no surrender.”
He added, “We need to call a bloodless revolution that will transform this nation from the hands of these economic canker worms and financial scavengers. Nigeria is not only sick, but suffering from dreadful continental abnormality”.
