This is quite the surprise. @TonyOjukwuO the head of NHRC called me today and I politely asked him to send me the information to look at later and I would get back to him. I have not even read the information about the panel I'm supposed to be on and my name is already in public.
I don't understand. Won't I even respond again before you decide to put me somewhere? I called him to ask why and it's "oh well". This is not how you do things.

They don't even know whether I would have said yes or no because I have not even read the thing.
It's not even about whether one should be there or not. How do you want to begin the conversation without my consent? What happens if I don't want to accept it?

A thread to go with your breakfast
On top of this, who is being held accountable? In sane societies, by now the CP or the person that's been in charge of the SARS team would have been sacked or made to resign. Rogue officers too that already have offences would have been asked to leave the force. Even just a few
People keep asking "okay how long will we be out" and well I don't know to be honest. I do know that pressure works. Everyday we've been out, at least here in Lagos, they come to say another thing that they'll do. It isn't satisfactory yet but the needle is moving small small

We are hearing that people are sending thugs to disrupt protests. Please be careful. These guys will be easy to spot because they are only there to cause trouble. They don't care about any peaceful protest but we are more than them. Please let us know if you need any security
They've started in Alausa. If you're there or headed there, please be safe! #EndSWAT
Please be careful everyone! These people are there to scatter everything. There are 10 security people in Alausa now. If you can help with organising private security please message @UnclePamilerin

To be 100% clear, this and the rest of what he is saying is false.

1. David, the engineer did not drive them around. There was a cab.
2. I have never said I'm only bothered about legal. That would be ridiculous because it is not my money. We have paid the all the bills I have ac
-knowledged. See screenshot. We said we would pay another guy that was released's bills.
3. @hyj_eagle, the lawyer I spoke to throughout, can confirm Ogun state offered to cover the bills as well.
4. I video called the 3 boys after they left (screenshot). In the presence of- ImageImage
of @holla_bash (a lawyer) and @hyj_eagle, I told the boys and also told the family members that we will pay any bills we receive and if they needed anything, they should reach out. They have not reached out yet.

5. @hyj_eagle text to say David was ill at 6.23 am. I saw it aft

Honestly wasnt planned the way pple think. Someone you know says please join this call, you join. The thing had already started. Youre seeing the same things repeated because all the 'protesters' invited said the same thing: none of us has power to speak for all or make decisions
That man has his own separate agenda, whatever that is. And that is his business. But it is a distraction. Divide and conquer and leave them to "handle things". Me, I don't represent anyone nor do I plan to. I don't mind what people think at all, but let us not get distracted.
They want the protests to stop, that's all. Even when the govt has not done anything tangible.

And if they do stop, it should be because people everywhere hey are not doing again, not because anybody has said that it's the end. As long as they go on, I will continue to help
