Nigeria: Amnesty International shares photos of sponsored protesters sharing money [photos]

On Monday, 4th June, Amnesty International threw a particularly difficult question on Twitter handle, demanding to know sponsors of protests against them.

The human rights body and the Nigerian government have been at loggerheads, especially over reports of military and paramilitary activities.

On Monday via its handle, Amnesty International shared photos of those it said were caught sharing money doled out to them after a demonstration at its office.

AI tweeeted: “A year ago, in March 2017 sponsored protesters invaded our office in Abuja for two days. They barred us from moving in and out.

At the end of each day of protest they congregate at Unity Fountain and paid the protesters N1400 each. Who is sponsoring them? #Nigeria.”
