Security agents lock down Abuja over #RevolutionNow protests

Security agents have put Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja, under partial lockdown to stop a scheduled protest by #RevolutionNow led by Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore.

Early this morning, a combined team of police, army, air force and some paramilitary personnel was deployed to the streets of Abuja, thus, preventing the protesters from converging.

Prompt News reports that #RevolutionNow group had scheduled a protest for today against ‘bad governance’ at the Unity Fountain at Maitama district in Abuja.

The leader of the group, Omoyele Sowore, tweeting via @YeleSowore, said: “Police, army and airforce put Abuja in lockdown to frustrate #RevolutionNow.

“Police attack #RevolutionNow members at Unity Fountain in Abuja, protesters arrested and are being brutalized.”
