Seeni Ajayi, One of the active leaders of the #RevolutionNow protest, has declared the coalition was happy the purpose of kick-starting a revolution in the country is achieved.
Ajayi announced Monday’s rally was a breakthrough because Nigerians started addressing the issues that emerged from it and more people followed the movement.
The activist affirmed this in a telephone conversation while replying to claims that the protest was called off by the organizers.
“It is not correct to say the protest was suspended since we only budgeted for one day protest to start the revolution. We are actually doing other things.
“We actually have to ascertain the casualties of the Nigerian state on Monday. It will be callous on our part not to address the casualties, and it was quite huge.
“Over 65 persons were arrested across the country. There was one gunshot wound in Lagos and in Ogun State. We are still looking at two or three; 40 persons were picked up by the police and state-sponsored thugs.
“The government committed a lot of crimes on that day and we are just getting many people out on bail. We are actually preparing for what will happen tomorrow.
“But what all this has done is that the revolution has begun. People are discussing the issue of change; people are also organising and joining us. That is what victory for us.”
Also, the Ogun State Police Command announced the four people arrested during the protest had been charged before an Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court.
