Muslim Youth Wear #BuhariMustGo T.Shirts To Jama’at Prayer In Abuja
A group of Muslim activists on Friday attended a Juma’at prayer at Central Mosque Gwagwalada Area Council of Federal Capital Territory ( FCT ) Abuja wearing T.Shirts with inscriptions
The activists who had earlier observed their prayers inside a mosque near Aguma palace later joined other muslim faithful at the overflow of the Central Mosque to observe Juma’at prayer.
The youths who complained bitterly over inadequate water supply and electricity in the area as well as corruption, insecurity and bad governance ravaging the country.
The activists who dared security operatives in the area insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari must resign from office for his incompetence and hardship he had brought upon Nigerians.
The youths were seeing exchanging greetings with their friends shortly after the prayer.
It would be recalled that five worshippers were arrested and brutalised at Dunamis International Gospel Centre ( Glory Dome ) by church security on July 4 before they were handed over to the operatives of Department of State Service ( DSS ) for wearing #BuhariMustGo T.Shirts.
The overzealous security operatives seized their mobile phones and forced them to delete the facebook livestream.
They were detained in an under ground cell at the headquarters of the service for 30 days and also prevented from seeing their lawyer and families.
The activists insisted that they committed no offence for wearing the T.Shirts.
A global human rights body Amnesty International while lendingits voice , in a post on its Twitter account called for the release of the activists saying that they were just exercising their rights as stipulated in the 1999 constitution.
Also civil society organisations said the arrest and continued detention of the activists was in contravention and violation of their fundamental human rights to freedom of expression, assembly and freedom movement as guaranteed under sections 39, 40, 41 respectively in the Nigerian constitution and other international conventions and treaties.
The rights group noted that human rights are sacred under the law and they remained guaranteed and protected.
But despite the ruling of the federal high court and magistrate court ordering the release of the activists from detention the DSS continued to hold them after they have met their bail conditions.
The secret police later on Tuesday night August 3 bowed to the pressure from Nigerians and released the young Nigerians.
