Nigerian human rights activist cum convener of the #RevolutionNow campaign, Omoyele Sowore has narrated how he was shot by a policeman during a rally in Abuja on Monday.
While speaking after being discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, Sowore said claims made by the police that no one was shot at the rally were false.
The Abuja Police Command allegedly denied them entry into the place describing the claim by Sowore as untrue.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the FCT, ASP Mariam Yusuf, in a statement, said “there is no record of such incident”, noting that police officers professionally restored calm at the Unity Fountain, venue of the protest.
However, Sowore in 26 minutes video posted on his verified Facebook handle said apart from shooting him, the police officers attempted to scare protesters away so that they would not rescue him.However, Sowore said apart from shooting him, the police officers attempted to scare protesters away so that they would not rescue him.
