Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has bemoaned alleged violations by police in Ekiti State.
The opposition said in the latest violence against citizens, police shot dead an APC member this past weekend.
''Our members were carrying brooms, not weapons, and were singing and dancing as they marched through the streets in the best tradition of political rallies. Their procession was peaceful and carnival-like until the police unleashed teargas and live bullets on them without provocation, killing one person and injuring many,"APC Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated.
He said this was unacceptable in any civilized society and must be condemned by all Nigerians.
Mohammed said had police, led by Ekiti head, Gabriel Selekere, been cautious, the peaceful procession by the APC members would not have degenerated into violence, during which a harmless citizen was apparently shot dead by the police.
