Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force have tortured and dehumanised #NorthIsBleeding protesters arrested in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The peaceful protesters and journalists had reportedly been taken away to the FCT Police Command headquarters.
According to human rights’ activist, Omoyele Sowore, the police after arresting the peaceful protesters went ahead to brutalise them.
He wrote on Twitter, “After brutalising #NorthIsBleeding protesters arrested in Abuja @PoliceNG dehumanising them further at the FCT police command! #SecureNorth #RevolutionNow #Buharimustgo.”
SaharaReporters had earlier reported how the Nigerian police arrested two protesters and two journalists with Roots TV in Abuja in the ongoing #NorthIsBleeding protest.
The protesters had on Wednesday morning staged the massive protest at the Nigerian Labour House popular known as Ayuba Wabba House, Central Area, while asking the labour leaders to join in the campaign in demanding an end to the killings going on in the northern region.
Meanwhile, Sowore had also joined the protest in solidarity while addressing the protesters to reject and cry out against the killings.
He had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to wake from his slumber and stop the carnage in all parts of the country.
But the police violently disrupted the peaceful rally as protesters were about to terminate the protest under the Area 1 bridge.
Two protesters had been beaten to a stupor in the process after which they were whisked into a Hilux van.
Also the crew from Roots TV including a cameraman, Tosin, and a reporter, Precious and the driver were arrested while covering the protest.
They were taken to the FCT Police Command headquarters.
