Oby Ezekwesili called out an Assistant Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Tijani Fatai, for according to her ‘being ignorant’ of Nigeria’s constitution as he explained why the police fired teargas at ‘Revolution’ protesters.
ACP Tijani Fatai while speaking to newsmen had said the protesters did not seek the permission of relevant authorities to convene.
“Their gathering is unlawful and an unlawful gathering is supposed to be discharged. We had to dislodge them because they have no permit,” Mr Fatai said.
However Oby Ezekwesili in response to the claims made by the Police boss, stated that he displayed a high level of ignorance of the Nigerian constitution.
“I just watched a @PoliceNG official calling a gathering of citizens who came out to protest Bad Governance an “unlawful assembly”. Such high level ignorance of the Constitution and the Laws of the Land. @BBOG_Nigeria secured a judgment against such stifling of Freedom in 2014,” she tweeted.
