Nigerian Police Force on Monday arraigned three protesters arrested during a peaceful protest in Ogun State calling for Government to disband the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit under the Nigerian Police.
The three protesters, Adeniji Sodiq (25 years old), Mutairu Faruq (19 years old), Olatoye Olalekan (23 years old) were charged with four count charges including attempted murder.
The statement issued by Citizens Gavel reads, “Three (3) of the Abeokuta protesters that were arrested on Friday were arraigned before a Magistrate Court today”..
Citizens’ Gavel, a civic tech organization, representing the protesters, said its lawyers “were unable to get them out on bail as the magistrate court does not have jurisdiction.”
“Unfortunately, they were charged with “Attempted Murder” thus, we were unable to get them out on bail as the magistrate court does not have jurisdiction”…
The police accused the three protesters of attempting “to kill one Ajagbusi Taofik by hitting him with dangerous weapons.”
One of the charges also said the three unlawfully and maliciously damaged Lexus jeep worth N100 million belonging to one Olabode Oyedele.
The case was further adjourned to the 28th day of October 2020.
