Human rights activist, Senator Shehu Sani, has commended Nigerians for protesting at the National Assembly over the hate speech bill.

Naija News had earlier reported that some concerned Nigerians on Wednesday protested at the National Assembly and across some other states in the country.

The protesters during the movement called for the withdrawal of the hate speech and social media bill

The convener of the Concerned Nigeria group, Deji Adeyanju, who led the protesters to the National Assembly gate, described the bills as “obnoxious”.

The protesters carried placards bearing various inscriptions aimed at rejecting the bills and calling for the release of the convener of the Revolution Now movement, Omoyele Sowore.

According to Adeyanju, the bills have no place in a democratic regime.
