#BuhariMustGo Protesters Arraigned, Granted Bail, Arrested Again




A magistrate court in Abuja has granted bail to the five #BuhariMustGo protesters arrested a few weeks ago at Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja.

The Department of State Services (DSS) had arrested Ben Manasseh, Anene Udoka, Henry Nwodo, Samuel Larry and Samuel Gabriel at the church premises in Abuja for allegedly wearing #BuhariMustGo branded shirts.

The activists went to the church to worship at the church but some of them were surprisingly rounded up and arrested by the church security guards who later handed them over to the DSS.

The activists were manhandled and beaten by the DSS operatives on the church premises, who also seized their mobile phones.

Recall that Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court had on July 26 ordered the DSS to release the applicants with immediate effect.

But despite the court order, the DSS arraigned the protesters on Wednesday before a magistrate court in Mpape, Abuja on charges bordering on disturbance of public peace.

The accused were granted bail in the sum of N500,000 and a surety in like sum.

However, they were whisked away by the DSS after the proceedings.
