Others were Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Festus Keyamo; Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kolo Kyari; Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, and the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.
Meanwhile, the protesters, who stormed the British and Irish high commissions yesterday for reversal of the judgment, have vowed to occupy the buildings for one week.
The decision followed their alleged snubbing by the authorities at the embassies.
The about 5000 youths and adults under the aegis of Coalition of Civil Society Groups and drawn from across the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) defied the early morning rains with their placards bearing various messages amid chants of anti-colonial songs.
While the march lasted, both the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing CB, and the Irish Ambassador to Nigeria, Seán Hoy, refused to address the demonstrators.
Even their letter of complaints was neither received by the envoys nor members of staff, as it was instead, read by the president of the coalition, Etuk Bassey, assisted by the secretary, Mallam Abubakar Ibrahim.
Angered by the envoys’ behaviour, the protesters resolved to press on with the picketing of the two embassies until they get audience and submit their complaints for onward transmission to London and Dublin.
