June 12 Protest: Citizen Agba Jalingo Released After Hours Of Detention

June 12 Protest: Citizen Agba Jalingo Released After Hours Of Detention


CrossRiverWatch Editor-in-Chief and rights activists, Citizen Agba Jalingo who was detained in the early hours of Friday over a fake petition that he is an arms dealer has been released.


A group, The Concerned Cross Riverians an unregistered organization whose address and contact details were not stated, wrote the petition saying he was an arms dealer.


The purported President, John Ndok and Secretary, Joy Amah did not sign and did not include their contact details in the petition.

He was released after citizens and activists mounted pressure on the Police querying why he was been detained.


And, the Police Commissioner, Sikiru Akande is said to have ordered his release having reviewed the case file and said the petition was frivolous.


He was invited by the commissioner over the planned #June12 protest and later referred alongside CrossRiverWatch News Editor, Jonathan Ugbal to the State Investigation Bureau where they were profiled and their biometrics captured.


An unnamed official then approached the duo, inviting them to the State Criminal Investigation Department where he was confronted with the petition.


His lawyer, James Ibor Esq. who secured his release described the situation as “unfortunate” and a clear attempt to “shrink the civic space.”


Agba, who is still standing trial for alleged acts of terrorism, treasonable felony, cultism and attempts to overthrow the Cross River State Government over an article published in 2019 wherein he demanded the whereabouts of the NGN500 million approved and released for the floating of the Cross River State Microfinance Bank says he will participate in the nationwide #June12 protests.

June 12 Protests: A Clarion Call for Nigerians to Arise in Defense of Life and Basic Rights! - CORE

June 12 Protests: A Clarion Call for Nigerians to Arise in Defense of Life and Basic Rights! - CORE


On June 12, 1993, Nigerians from all walks of life rose up to elect a civilian president to replace the extant military dictator, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida who was head of a military junta renowned for extreme corruption, repression and bastardization of the economy bringing hardship on the poor masses. Nigerians looked forward to a better run economy, national institutions that work for the people, respect for human rights of all and equal opportunities for all to thrive. Unfortunately, the results of the widely acknowledged free and fair election was canceled without any reason whatsoever by the same military junta that organized it! 

Nigerians resisted this violent assault and engaged the military in a series of street battles and mass strikes which forced the Babangida junta out of power. But another military bandit called Gen. Sani Abacha took over. As it became clear that Abacha was only interested in handing over to himself in a charade of a transition program, Nigerians continued their agitations on the streets and by 1998, the Abacha junta itself succumbed to popular pressure when he died in office and his successors led by Gen. Abubakar had to hurriedly organize elections that ushered in civilian rule in 1999.

Unfortunately, since 1999, a very venal and criminal-minded class of politicians has seized Nigerians by the jugular, subjecting the country to an unprecedented regime of looting of public resources, destruction of public services especially education, healthcare, potable water and electricity while they literally stole national assets and companies worth trillions of dollars in bogus ‘privatization’ exercises. 

Many of these companies such as the steel rolling mills in Oshogbo, Jos and Katsina and over 300 other state-owned enterprises were then stripped of their assets by the new ‘buyers’ while millions of workers were laid off. In a state like Lagos, government sells off public lands and spaces such as markets and mechanic villages to their fronts and turn these public spaces to their own while rendering hundreds of thousands of self-employed workers, traders and artisans in the informal sector jobless. They also evict people living in informal settlements and take over the land for themselves. 

The politicians have turned it to a practice to arm hooligans and other criminals with dangerous weapons to help them rig elections. After the elections, the armed bandits become terror on the rest of society. This results in terrible insecurity all over the country while farmers are terrorized to abandon the farms. Prices of food have skyrocketed while mass unemployment of young people is rife.




June 12 Today and Our Demands!

June 12 today is a clarion call for us to all rise up and restate the reasons why we and our fathers and mothers fought for democracy. As we march to mark the day, we demand:

All political prisoners and citizens being held on spurious grounds by the Gen. Buhari government be released unconditionally.

All stolen government properties, lands and spaces be reclaimed for public use.

Overhaul of our refineries to make them supply affordable energy to boost production and employment while those making them unworkable should be prosecuted.

Increased funding of basic public goods especially education, healthcare, potable water supply etc

Renationalization of the power sector as the private operators that stole them from the public with the promise of more efficient services, more employment and reduced energy cost have demonstrated that they are only interested in fleecing Nigerians with over 500% increase in tariffs, bogus estimated billings while they give Nigerians only darkness.

A more concerted war on the bandits armed by politicians causing mayhem all over the country. Communities should be encouraged to arm and protect themselves rather than relying on overfed Generals who have turned the war on terror to an opportunity to become billionaires.

We call on all Nigerians to also learn from our history and resist moneybag politicians. They serve themselves and not the 99% of the masses. We must kick them out and throw off the burden of their exploitative system that threatens to destroy the poor working people!

We call on all Nigerians to resist the Buhari government descent to totalitarianism marked by the vicious mass killing of peaceful protesters during the Endsars Protests and the recent ban on Twitters and the regime’s quest to restrict free Speech.

Major General Muhammadu Buhari to declare State of Emergency in Southeast and Oyo State

Major General Muhammadu Buhari to declare State of Emergency in Southeast and Oyo State


It has been confirmed and affirmed that State of emergency will be declared in South East and Oyo State.


The arrival of Hercules C130 Airforce plane at Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport by 4:20pm today to drop off troops alongside military hardwares has been confirmed. 


Please let everyone be advised and prepare for the days ahead, difficult days are ahead of us all, our teaming youths should be careful and learn how to dress well to avoid harassment or arrest by these blood thirsty demons, avoid large gatherings and keeping late at night, present yourself in a decent and gentle manner when being accosted by these folks.


IMO may plunge into a gorilla battle if the unknown gunmen extends their rilvary with the soldiers, DSS, and police, then our people will become the victim of crossfire.

 The state of Emergency in Oyo State is actually needles but will be to favour the FULANI Invaders as the federal government has been showing endless Supports for the terrorists and criminals causing unrests everywhere across the country.

The cabals have also embarked on executing plans to extend the tenure of the incumbent by any means possible including using bandits and Herdsmen to cause havocs.

ATTEMPTS TO MURDER SOWORE: IN VAIN BUHARI'S BANGLES CAST!

ATTEMPTS TO MURDER SOWORE: IN VAIN BUHARI'S BANGLES CAST!

 By Kunle Wizeman Ajayi


For the upteenth time, the Nigerian rulling class has made another deadly attack on Omoyele Sowore, the National Chair of the African Action Congress (AAC) and leader of the TakeItBack Movement (TIB.) This time, its at Unity Fountain and its yet again the same SARS Squad that made the last attempt on Sowore and other comrades' lives during the January 1st #RevolutionNow Cross Over Night. I narrowly escaped that brutality myself. The grouse of the Nigerian rulers is that Sowore is leading the most sophisticated, ideological, and consistent opposition to its current Fascist momentum which is meant to destroy the heightening hunger of milliions of Nigerian workers and youths for a new and pro-people country.



The protest at Unity Fountain was called by the Femi Falana-led T-PAPS and Omoyele Sowore was invited alongside other change-seeking activists and people. As early as 6.00am, the Unity Fountain had been sealed by war-ready police and DSS officers. The police officers on ground engaged with Sowore to reach out to FCT CP Bala, who evidently denied the order to seal the fountain. But within few minutes, the DSP Altine-led SARS Squad stormed the venue and started shooting. DSP Altine Daniel herself shot directly at Sowore and even told him pointedly after the activist queried that; "I did!"



But DSP Altine and the police thugs of President Buhari has failed again. Their plan to destroy all genuine voices of dissent is shattered. This is the third deadly attack on Sowore after the Great #ENDSARS Revolt which baptized and energized the Buhari-taunted "lazy youths" and turned them to a coconut head-generation that globally sorosoke for a new democratic, economically developed and sustainanble, secure, and pro-people Nigeria. The fourteen days of #EndSARS was so great that it shook not only the Buhari government, but the whole world!

The last point of the 5FOR5 Demands of the #EndSARS Revolt was salary increment and welfare of police and military rank and files. We urge all sensible police and military guys to start thinking from their hearts and stop licking the anus of their officers of impunity who are the ones chopping their lives all around while the rank and files are suffering and facing the hell of insecurity and terrororism. Many a police guys are ambitious state terrorists themselves, but many still has some hearts. These ones must, organize and be counted amongst the millions who truly want a country of peace and prosperity. The lessons of the 2002 National Police Strike need to be learnt and advanced.


However, what are the lessons from this particular attack?


First is that the Nigerian Ruling Class is testing the waters. I witnessed the New Year 2021 Cross Over attack. The drunk SARS officers were pointedly agitated to inflict deadly injuries on us all, and especially Omoyele Sowore. Same DSP Altine called his bosses after the headbutt that broke Sowore's nose by DSP Suleiman Abdulkadir, and jubilantly announced that she had captured the big fish. But the protests after caused them big regrets.


Also, this second straight shooting at Sowore was almost like the one at the front of the National Assembly when the Abuja Six were arrested. That its same DSP Altine-led SARS Squad, let the cat out of the bag that the Buhari government is determined to go bunkers to eliminate all forms of real and formidable oppositions.


Finally, the deadly attacks on Sowore has shown that what the government fear the most is revolution! The Five-Point Demands of the #RevolutionNow of: *An Economy that Works For the Masses; An Effective and Democratic End To Insecurity;  An End To Systemic Corruption and For Total System Change; The Immediate Implementation of #30,000 Minimum Wage; and Free and Quality Education and Healthcare For All* hit the nails on the heads while the Coalition For Revolution (CORE)'s Charter of Demands is an altruistic and radically historic booklet that opens the road to a new thinking for a new world in a new Nigeria.


The  Buhari government is a cowardly affliction that must be deafeated. Only the unity of all oppressed will instructively respond surgically and more safely to end the shenanigans of our oppressors. Scattered we may loose. From North to South, oppressions and mass poverty are much things to unite us than divide us. Let all us all, by June 12, show the Buhari government that we all can march together in our millions to win. In the North, we march in millions to defeat Boko Haram, ISWAP, Bandits, and the state terrorists. From East to South, we march against Unknown Gun Men, Bandits, Kidnappers, and the Pallaitaive Rogues in government. Our oppressors are one and the same in different agbada, babariga, and suits. Only by uniting all struggles of workers and youths like the Januray 2012 Uprising Against Subsidy Removal and the #EndSARS Revolts to a gigantic #RevolutionNow will we ever get the new Nigeria we want. As we soldier on, and Omoyele Sowore has bounced back like the lion is wont to, we point all our ten fingers of waka to boo the Bubu and the runining class in the words from Wole Soyinka's "Abiku" that :

Attacks on Sowore: Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria Condemns Security Crackdown on Protesters

Attacks on Sowore: Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria Condemns Security Crackdown on Protesters

 *Press Statement - May 31st 2021*



The Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, GCSDN condemns in totality, the Nigeria Police Force’s crackdown on a protest at Abuja and the subsequent gun attack on Omoyele Steven Sowore today.


Omoyele Sowore, former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress and the National Convener of the Take it Back Movement (TIB) was reportedly shot by ACP - Altine Daniel at close range.



The right to peaceful protest and assembly is an inalienable right of Nigerians. Any attempt to forcefully take this right away from Nigerians is a call to anarchy and a clear expression of authoritarianism.


It is a sad irony that this regime takes money to the forests to negotiate with murderous terrorists while peaceful unarmed protesters are shot or unlawfully detained. Nigerians must nit continue to stand aloof.


We hereby demand that all police officers involved in the shooting be brought to book IMMEDIATELY.

We further demand that all trumped up charges against Omoyele Sowore be dropped, while the federal government should call for a national dialogue and reconciliation to stop the continuing bleeding in our country.

 Furthermore, we demand  that the five Senior Advocates of Nigeria in the administration of President-General Buhari should advise him and the Inspector General of Police, appropriately, in accordance with the laws of the federal republic of Nigeria and the tenets of human rights.


We believe that their advise may prevent future mockery of our country among the committee of nations.


If the President cannot restore normalcy and guarantee the lives and property of Nigerians, the Senate should take the bold step to impeach him in the interest of the country.


Nobody is bigger than Ngeria nor above the law.


A stitch in time saves nine.

AAC PRESS STATEMENT: WE CONDEMN THE ATTACK ON PEACEFUL PROTESTERS TODAY AT UNITY FOUNTAIN, ABUJA

CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE ARREST OF CSP HYELHIRA ALTINE WHO SHOT OMOYELE SOWORE AT CLOSE RANGE. 


Nigerians have recorded any low in the attack on the rights of Nigerians to peacefully assemble , associate and express themselves without fear. We are seized by the event at the Unity Fountain, Abuja where concerned citizens have gathered to protest the spate of insecurity that has claimed the lives of over 4500 Nigerians in a space of just a month. This is without mentioning the rate of kidnappings, violent displacement of persons and banditry ravaging our immediate communities. The drowsiness of the Buhari regime has also made the country rank 3rd position in the list of most terrorized nations in the World. 

These were among the many unfortunate reasons concerned Nigerians including members of the AAC proposed to gather and demand in a peaceful protest that the sleeping regime wake up to its primary responsibility to secure lives and property of Nigerians. 


No sooner had Nigerians gathered at the protest ground than the gates were locked on the orders of the Conmissoner of Police, FCT, Bala Ciroma. 



While the National Chairman of the AAC, Sowore alongside other comrades was addressing the illegality, another detachment of armed-to-the-teeth policemen led by CSP Altine arrived the scene and without recourse to any iota of civilization or civil engagement, shot at Omoyele Sowore and dispersed the protesters violently. 


We maintain that the shooting of the National Chairman, OMOYELE SOWORE in Abuja this morning by the police is a well-planned but poorly executed and botched political assassination attempt by Buhari government and its think tank! We demand the immediate arrest of CSP Altine and her team. 


The attack on peaceful protesters today is the last thing they had to do to intimidate the people and to send the signal of how deadly they could be in the next days, if people attempted to stage any form of protest.


We want to assure the murderous Buhari regime that this shall be counter-productive in the long run as it is very impossible to beat citizens to stupor like this and still forbid them from crying or determine the place where they can cry. 


The AAC calls on all Nigerians home and abroad to remain resolute in the fight against tyranny and oppression in our land and we shall be victorious in the fight to send these marauders out of power, for a sane society to be established. 


The struggle continues!

AAC National Chairman Omoyele Sowore has just been shot in Abuja, in critical condition

AAC National Chairman Omoyele Sowore has just been shot in Abuja, in critical condition

Let the struggle continue even if they take my life says Sowore

 The publisher of Sahara Reporters and former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the 2019 general election Omoyele Sowore has been reportedly shot by the police in Abuja, the NIGERIA'S Capital.


The convener of the RevolutionNow movement has been confined in the FCT by a federal court over a purported protest in August 2019.

The details and his present state remained unknown as he was been shot in the abdomen, according to the circulating pictures on the social media.


Further sources confirmed that @YeleSowore was shot by a female Police @PoliceNG Officer at Unity Fountain in Abuja, as the Police blocked protesters from entering Unity Fountain with BuhariMustGo protest.
The party wrote:




The Police woman DSP Hyelhira Altine Daniel has been pointed as the one who shot sowore during the protest. Source added that this same woman attempted the same sinister move on Sowore sometimes ago in Abuja.


Further report also says he was shot in the tight. Comrades were seen in a video helping the activist out of the scene into a waiting vehicle.




An eye witness account said: "It wasn’t stray at all. I was close to him holding his phone and recording. She shot immeditely she arrived the scene. Sowore was shouting “you just shot me” repeatedly. We were both looking at her with the hope that she would say it’s a mistake or even show some kind of remorse or shock. Her look suggested affirmation of her action. It was after the first shot, tear gas canisters were shot. She did it on orders."


Although in a critical condition, he is responding to treatment said another sources.

A Charade The Nigerian Police Called Parade Of Iniubong's Killer Akpan Uduak

A Charade The Nigerian Police Called Parade Of Iniubong's Killer Akpan Uduak


This morning, I wanted to know why Akpan Uduak who killed an innocent job seeker Iniubong Umoren have not been paraded by the Nigerian Police as they usually do even for alleged suspects who sometimes are not guilty, how much more a self confessed killer and rapist. 


I then decided to call the Akwa Ibom Commissioner of Police Mr. Andrew Amiengheme after asking him of the rumour flying around that Uduak is dead he debunked it and jokenly said yes he's "dead" in the social media. I then asked him why is it taking so much time to parade him? he said he'll be paraded later today. 


I then waited patiently for it and at noon the police paraded the ritual "Otokoto" killer alleged to be working with about 4 Akwa Ibom House of Assembly Members, 3 National Assembly members, and 9 pastors, which I am not too surprised knowing fully well the extent these men can go in Nigeria. Akpan was looking so cute, fresh, relaxed, pampered and even wearing a customized Tee Shirt with the inscription "The Mudder Squad".


I was so shocked because the same police that strips, torture and humiliates peaceful protesters now know how to treat a confessed killer with dignity and respect. I watched in disbelief the mockery and prententiousness of the police I became very sad and angry as Akpan began to spew trash which I think was scripted, imagine him saying Ini agreed to have sex with him with condom and later while removing the condom she hit him with a stabilizer and then he took the stabilizer to hit her back in self defense. I was mad.


I also think the journalists that questioned him made a caricature of themselves. One asked him "Were you in love with her? "Why did you remove the condom?" At that point Akpan was trying so hard not to burst into laughter with so much confidence. I am afraid this case will go the way of several others who never got justice. 


The bribale police is extremely corrupt and they work for the criminal ruling class and the rich thieves to get away with anything. The legal system is worst because they pervert justice. In Nigeria everything is rigged against the "poor and nobodies.


After graduating from University of Uyo, all Iniubong Umoren wanted was to get a job and take care of her siblings as they are orphans. I am tired. May her soul rest in peace.
