5 ENDSARS protesters were remanded at a correctional center by a magistrate court sitting in Abuja.
The 5 protesters were among those who participated in the ENDSARS protest in front of the National Assembly in Abuja on Friday, November 6.
Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, had 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.
In an update shared on his Facebook page, Omoyele said the arrested protesters were arraigned before a Magistrate court and the court denied them bail and 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
