    I didn’t know that protesting in Naija is a crime…! Since when? Na today people dey protest? If so, nobody should be graduating from Nigerian universities as many student protests as have occurred in colleges around the country. They are not serious. Just looking for a way to curb people’s rights. Useless lot. Don’t worry, is the person who even gave you advanced warning. Next time they will spring the surprise on you from nowhere. Naija been needed a radical change since 19-gbogboran. Where the real one will come from, you sef will not expect it.

    If you are protesting and you dont know why you are protesting that’s even more of a bigger issue for me.

    The police or Policy is an extension of the law – a law or legal system that currently infringes on the inalienable rights of human beings in Nigeria.

    Laws that infringe on the inalienable rights of human beings are the major source of all of Nigeria’s problems. Some of these laws are even null and void as they contradict the constitution. Anybody that is telling you otherwise is a lier or has something to benefit from infringing on your inalienable rights.

    inalienable rights of a human being is not a privilege or something given to you by another man. its bestowed upon man by his creator and they can be scientifically proven.

    These laws or legal system is put in place or abetted by rent-seekers for financial benefit and most of them (rent-seekers) are Lawyers and Accountants, some of them are your friends and family members.

    They know what exactly they are doing and they even try deliberately to suppress knowledge of it.

    A police man will not be disturbing you if he doesn’t have legal backing or instructions to do so, the entire Nigerian Police Force will think twice and ensure training if they know they have burden of proof and can be sued and pay-out heavy compensation in every case in which they are found in the wrong at no legal cost to the victim or an advocate.

    But because there is grand-rent-seeking-pyramid-scheme to infringe on your inalienable rights for the financial benefit of lawyers and accountants.

    These are the sort of outcomes you get.

    My advice before you protest go and read about your inalienable rights, then read all the laws that have to do with prosperity on this land. You may find yourself protesting at the door front of rent-seekers as oppose to national stadium.
