Renewed Subsidy Protests Threat: Federal Government Increase Security In Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park

OCCUPY protesters

Following the public uproar that trailed the release of the adhoc Committee on Fuel Subsidy Investigation’s report, the Federal Government has begun to increase security in strategic areas where the Occupy Nigeria protests were quick to mushroom last January.
Police patrols and sentinels were dispatched to the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park in Lagos overnight, according to residents in the area.
The Federal Government is believed to be jittery concerning warnings from Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) indicating the protests may be much more severe than those which occurred in January if the Executive fails to prosecute those found culpable in the report.
The Save Nigeria Group (SNG) led by Tunde Bakare recently issued a notice to government on impending protests.
Spokesman for SNG, Yinka Odumakin said of the report, “It is an open book on the rape of a nation by mindless people. We expect that the Federal Government will want to treat the report as a family affair, but we, SNG, will ensure that this is the final nail on the coffin of corruption in Nigeria.
“If the report is not implemented fully within the given time frame, SNG will mobilise Nigerians to come out and speak up against corruption.”
