Gbadamosi Reacts As Bill Seeking To Criminalise Protests In Nigeria Scales Through First Reading

Former Lagos governorship candidate, Babatunde Gbadamosis has recently taken to his social media handles to react as bill seeking to criminalise protests in Nigeria scales through first reading

According to a report by NN News, it stated that a bill prescribing a five-year jail term for unlawful protesters in Nigeria has been approved for a second reading at the House of Representatives on Thursday. The bill also mentions that whoever participate in a riot is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for three years, while mob action is five years imprisonment.

However, Gbadamosi while reacting, emphasized that if the bill eventually becomes a law, it will provoke people the more to engage in protests.

Quoting the original statement he released via his official Twitter handle, he said this, "Let them continue. It will not protect them. It will actually provoke people the more, and the result of the pent up anger will not be pleasant for them and their families worldwide".
