Twitter On Fire As Oby Ezekwesili Reacts To #IStandWithNigeria Protest

  • Slam FG, Lagos Police For Intolerant To Criticism
Former Former minister of Education and the head of Bring Back Our Girls Group, Oby Ezekwesili has called on the Federal Government to order the Lagos State Police not to stop the #IStandWithNigeria protest slated for February 5 to hold in the state.

The former Vice President (Africa Desk) of the World Bank in a series of Tweets on Friday slammed the government for being intolerant to criticism.

The Lagos State Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni on Wednesday said he will not allow the planned protest against the Federal Government.

According to the police chief, the command wasn’t ready for that kind of demonstration and as such would not allow it to hold. He said no matter how good an intention is, hoodlums would always find a way to harass, rob and attack innocent members of the public, who may wish to go about their Lawful duty.

Owoseni said: “Information reaching us revealed that some hoodlums are planning to hijack the peaceful protest. And as such, we won’t allow it to hold in Lagos. We know that Tuface do not have the capacity to contain such a crowd and we will not fold our hands and watch while things go out of hand.”
