Mohbad: Tacha applauds Police for dispersing protesters at Lekki

Published

Big Brother Naija star, Tacha Akide has applauded the Nigerian police for deploying teargas to disperse a crowd at the Lekki Phase 1 toll gate.

Recall that reports emerged yesterday of an incident in which tear gas was deployed by the Lagos State Police in the Lekki area, resulting in injuries to some individuals.

Tacha, on her Instagram page on Friday, urged people to avoid spreading inaccurate information about the situation because the organisers had granted the audience permission to leave after the performance ended.

She claimed that they stayed back, turning the demonstration that was meant to honour and seek justice for Mohbad into a protest, which prompted the Nigerian police to step in.

“We can all agree that the organisers said you can all go home. Everybody saw when this event ended yesterday; you saw the celebrity leave; you saw everybody going, but no, some people decided to pack themselves to Lekki toll gate.

“If you want to protest, it’s not an issue, but a lot of people did not come out to protest. If you want to protest, fix a date, get the date approved by the goverment and then you can go out.

“Like stop changing the narrative; they started early and ended early; they told everybody to go home, but no, you people want to bring up issues where there is no issue.

“Kudos to the Nigerian police, you people tried, cause I saw video of them begging people to go home, but people want to hijack a candle-light procession for a brother of ours that died, and you want people to come online and support you, im sorry. ”

– Nnamdi Kanu seeks negotiation with FG over ongoing trial
– Kanu’s lawyer moves two applications before the Federal High Court
– FG’s counsel says defendant should approach Attorney General for negotiation

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed willingness to negotiate with the Federal Government over his ongoing trial.

Through his counsel, Alloy Ejimakor, Kanu informed the Federal High Court in Abuja of his intention to seek negotiation under Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act.

Ejimakor had earlier moved two applications before the court, including one objecting to the jurisdiction of the court. If the applications are denied, Kanu’s lawyer plans to invoke Section 17, which promotes reconciliation and amicable settlement among parties.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government’s counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, stated that the defendant should approach the Attorney General of the Federation for negotiation.

Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, clarified that the court’s role is to hear cases, not to solicit negotiations. Kanu has been in DSS custody since June 2021, facing terrorism-related charges levelled against him by the government.

His lawyer’s latest move may signal a potential shift in the case’s trajectory.
