It was reported that some sets of noble individuals and groups consisting of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and other prominent Nigerians were denied access into the Court, as security agents were deployed around the premises as early as 4am. It was gathered that the security operatives blocked the roads leading to the Court and nearby streets including Shehu Shagari way; a road leading to Hilton Hotel.

We are not here to discuss about how the rights of the individuals were deprived of them, but to treat one major incident that seemed unpleasant.

The unpleasant incident, which started when Omoyele Sowore was talking to security operatives who denied him access into the Court needs to be addressed.

Omoyele Sowore, the Publisher of Sahara Reporters and one of the prominent human rights activist, was reportedly humiliated by hoodlums, who slapped and punched him in the present of security operatives without them interfering on the matter. It was gathered that it took protest by lawyers and journalists for the security agents to reluctantly intervene and stopped the hoodlums from beating Sowore.

In my opinion, as a security agent, it is their primary responsibility to resolve disputes and arrest hoodlums but to the surprise of everyone, they did nothing to stop the crisis until sowore's sided -group had to protest.

I think it is time that we are the caus of our own problem. If we must progress in Nigeria, we must work together in love and unity. It is very wrong that the security operatives did not stop the injustice act that was happening before their very eyes until the group had to protest.
