Phones belonging to two #BuhariMustGo youth activists arrested on October 1, Nigeria’s Independence Day were stolen by men of the Galadimawa Police Station in Abuja, SaharaReporters has gathered.
The activists had joined others last Friday to call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Displaying placards that say ‘Buhari Must Go’ and chanting the same message, the protesters blocked the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road.
The protesters, who were out as early as 7 am, also called for good governance, transparency, and an end to insecurity.
The protest coincided with the 61st Independence Anniversary of Nigeria.
The #BuhariMustGo and #RevolutionNow protesters were later violently dispersed and beaten after being chased into the bush by a detachment of armed anti-riot policemen, led by a female police officer, ASP Altine Daniel.
SaharaReporters gathered that police operatives from Galadimawa Police Station, who were at the scene forcibly collected phones belonging to two of the arrested protesters before transferring them to the FCT CID.
