“You Don’t Have The Right To Protest Against High Electricity Tarriff” – Police Tell Youths (Video)

Some Nigerian youths who took to the streets of Abuja to protest against the increased electricity tarriff, were spotted in a viral video being assaulted by some policemen.

One of the protesters, @AyowoleSanyaolu who noted that the protest at the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) office in Abuja was a peaceful one, said they were stopped by the policemen who assaulted them, telling them that they don’t have the right to protest.

He tweeted:

“While we protest peacefully at @NERCNG , Abuja, against the thoughtless increment in electricity tariff, @PoliceNG descended on us fiercely. A number of us were mercilessly beaten and others were dragged like common criminals. But in all, we stood our ground. Tyranny will not win!”
