Protesters Occupy Abuja Office of Amnesty International

Thousands of protesters have continued to occupy the Abuja office of Amnesty International.
The protesters are insisting that the international human rights body must leave Nigeria following the release of report indicting Nigeria security agencies of human rights abuses.
The protesters who stormed office of Amnesty International with a coffin and inscription of rest in peace (RIP), condemned the organisation for the report.
Addressing the protest in front of office of the international organisation, Executive Director, Global Peace and Life Rescue Initiative ( GOPRI), Melvin Ejeh, said amnesty had until 12 midnight Wednesday to vacate Nigeria, adding that beginning from Thursday, legal actions would be taken against the organisation.
He described as laughable recent report by the organisation that it does not recognise or react to NGOs not registered with it as the height of organisation’s penchant for trivialities and a fact that the international NGO does not believe in what it preaches.
Ejeh challenged Amnesty to disclose its affiliation with Boko Haram for the world to know when and where it registered the terror group that the killers had become their partners.
