Atiku tackles police over Lekki tollgate arrests

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar says the violation of citizens’ right to peaceful protest is “not acceptable and stands condemned”.

The former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was reacting to the arrest of more than 30 #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters by security operatives on Saturday.

The protesters gathered to campaign against the approval granted by the Lagos judicial panel to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to resume operations at the tollgate.

Wake up from your slumber- PDP Tells Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to “wake up from his slumber” and ensure security of lives and property in the country. The opposition party, in a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, its national publicity secretary, said the crisis in various parts of the country is as a result of the “insensitive, divisive and parochial approach to governance” by the Buhari-led administration.

Adegboruwa Considers Quitting Lagos Judicial Panel

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, on Saturday said he was considering revoking his membership of the Lagos Judicial Panel of Inquiry after protesters were arrested at the Lekki toll gate.The protesters were railing against the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry to reopen the toll gate.

Adegboruwa, who had opposed the reopening of the toll gate, said the clampdown was “totally unacceptable”.

Donald Trump Acquitted

Donald Trump survived a second impeachment trial Saturday when the US Senate acquitted him on the charge of incitement of insurrection, ending Democratic efforts to hold the former president accountable over the deadly US Capitol riot. The five day trial, in which Democratic impeachment managers argued that Trump betrayed his oath of office by urging his supporters to storm Congress in a bid to block certification of the November election, concluded with an insufficient 57-43 majority of senators voting to convict.
