Less than 24 hours after the news was published, a second phase protest begins as elderly men and women took to the streets today at the Tejuosho Market, Yaba, Lagos demanding for justice and an end to police brutality.
According to legal Practitioner and Human Rights Activist, Inibehe Effiong, he said; “The case filed by the police is designed to stall hearings at the various panels of Inquiry across the country.
