Men of the Nigeria Police Force on Monday stormed and sealed the venue where a group of activists and citizens, including Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, were to speak and deliberate on the state of insecurity in the country.
The programme organised by a group, Coalition for Revolution, was scheduled to hold on Ibijoke Street, in the Oregun area of Lagos State at 11 am, but security agents stormed the venue and prevented participants from entering the place.
Following the actions by security operatives, citizens took to the street to protest and address members of the press, expressing their dissatisfaction at the government’s consistent repression of democratic freedoms in the country.
