Many eminent Nigerians, Civil Society Organizations, legal luminaries and the Nigerian Labour Congress have descended on the Federal Government for attacking anti-Buhari protesters on Tuesday and Tuesday.
Recall we had reported that the anti-Buhari protesters led by the  Convener, Charly Boy were teargassed by the policemen on Tuesday causing him to slump and faint. Charly Boy, DailyglobeWatch reliably gathered was also hit by the policeman with the butt of his gun.
This, however, has attracted attention and condemnation as Nigerians continue to express outrage against the police brutality.
Reacting to the attack, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria , Yusuf Alli (SAN)  while expressing outrage condemned the attack which he says was“primitive, outdated and a breach of the fundamental human rights.”
He said: “The way our police manage protests and strikes is outdated and primitive. There is no other place in the world that when the people go on protests, the police will carry guns. The protest-control strategy of the Nigeria police is very primitive. There must be a proper training for them on how to manage protests.
“The people are right to make demands. The constitution really does not specify how long the president can be out of the country. We know that he has legitimately transmitted power.
“The way to go is that there should be an amendment of the constitution that if a president or a governor is out of the country for a number of days on account of ill health, then his office becomes vacant.”

Also, the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, President, Malachy Ugwummadu, said, “The right of every Nigerian to freely associate, assemble and express themselves is guaranteed under Sections 39 and 40 of the constitution.
“The police cannot infringe on the rights of citizens to freely enjoy these rights. The police also got it wrong because these people no longer need their permission to assemble. The Court of Appeal in the case of the Inspector-General of Police versus ANPP had struck out the Public Protection Order in favour of the rights of Nigerians.
“On the people’s demands, they are right because President Buhari should have long declared a state of emergency in the country’s health sector. As it is now, our health sector cannot sustain life.”
Condemning the attack, the  Nigeria Labour Congress said it was condemnable for the police to unleash attack and brutality on Nigerian citizens who were only carrying out a peaceful protest which is part of inalienable right. 
NLC said “The citizens have the right under the constitution to engage in peaceful assembly.
“Any violation of that right is condemnable irrespective of the circumstance.”
Campaign for Democracy did not spare the Federal Government either as it descended heavily on the use of extreme force by the Police on peaceful protesters.
Usman Abdul, the Campaign for Democracy President said: “That police incursion was uncalled for. I was also at the protest and it was a peaceful walk. We have been part of this struggle since 2010 under the Save Nigeria Group.
“We only assembled to protest the long stay of our president abroad, having been made a monument of tourist attractions. These are our agitations and it was unfortunate that the police came in and started their brutality.”
The Pan-Yoruba Socio-Cultural group , Afenifere also condemned the attack on the anti-Buhari protesters.
Afenifere’s spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, said with all emphasis that it is the right of the protesters to protest provided no public property was damaged in the process.
He said, “If the protesters destroyed public property during their protest, that is a different thing, but for the police to attack peaceful protesters is barbaric and the government should be condemned.
“There were protests under the last administration and the President (Buhari) at a point participated and no one was attacked by security forces.”
