JUST IN: Pro-Government Protesters Storm Amnesty International’s Office

Reports reaching us has it that some protesters have mounted a demonstration outside the Abuja office of Amnesty International.

The report has it that the protesters arrived at the body’s office around noon this Friday demanding its immediate exit from Nigeria.

According to Isa Sanusi, spokesperson for Amnesty International Nigeria who spoke with Premium Times, the protesters appear to be pro-government as they expressed anger at the way the group has been critical of the Buhari led APC led administration.

The protest is coming some hours after the Federal Government expressed its displeasure on Amnesty International’s support for the RevolutionNow campaign, saying it will be closely monitoring the group’s activities henceforth.

The demonstrators held placards carrying inscriptions critical of Amnesty International and chanted disparaging songs against the rights group.

This protest is coming on the heels of the recent #RevolutioNow campaign which trended on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter on Thursday, August 1st with Amnesty International also expressing its support for the campaign.

The campaign initiated by Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters aims to disrupt the political space with an Arab Spring styled revolution drive.

The campaign is planned for August 5th across major states in the country.
