Buhari Lands In Court Over Arrest, Intimidation Of Peter Obi’s Supporters

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has concluded plans to drag president Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) over reports of intimidation and attacks on supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

SERAP made this known via its verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.

RovingNaija News earlier reported that Obi condemned the alleged arrest and intimidation of his supporters, who are fondly known as Obidients.

In a tweet thread on Tuesday, the former Anambra State governor described as disturbing and condemnable the recent reports that some security agents silently arrested some Obidients.

He added that elections would not be free and fair when some groups intimidate their opposition, both during campaigns and at the polls.

“We’re suing the Buhari administration and Nigeria Police Force over reports of intimidation and attacks on supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate in some parts of the country. Everyone has the right to participation and assembly,” SERAP said in a statement.
