Court remand #EndSARS protesters in prison (photos and video)

A magistrate court has reportedly ordered the remand of five persons who participated in the #ENDSARS protest in front of the National Assembly in Abuja on Friday, November 6, at a correctional center.

On November 6, the publisher of Sahara Reporters,  Omoyele Sowore, shared videos online claiming that he and some protesters who stormed the National Assembly to paint EndSARS graffiti on the road leading to the Assembly were attacked by policemen and five of them were arrested.

Sharing a new update on his Facebook page, Sowore said the arrested protesters were arraigned before a Magistrate court and were denied bail. The court ordered that they be remanded in prison custody.

“After our #EndSARS Graffiti action at the National Assembly today, we headed to the Magistrates in Wuse area of Abuja where some of our colleagues were arraigned after unlawful arrests were carried out by the Nigerian police. The court activities were scripted, it was unbelievable! The Magistrate denied our comrades bail using the case of Asari Dokubo as a justification. We were all shocked but not surprised. They were eventually led away to prison! Just another sad day and the reason we must keep fighting to liberate ourselves. #RevolutionNow” he wrote.
