For two days now, protesters, Tuesday, have continued to besieged the Abuja office of Amnesty International, insisting on occupying the office until the organisation leaves the country.

The protesters had on Monday stormed the human rights organization office, calling on the federal government to severe all tiers with Amnesty International, following what they described as deliberate sabotage of Nigeria’s security.

It was observed by newsmen  that on Tuesday, more protesters in their hundreds joined the protest, swelling up the numbers of those insisting on AI leaving the country.

Addressing the protesters in front of the amnesty office, Executive Director of Global Peace and Life Rescue Initiative ( GOPRI), Melvin Ejeh insisted that the protest is continuous and that they would converge again tomorrow until amnesty international leaves Nigeria.

He urged more Nigerians to come out en mass to eject those he described as “enemies of Nigeria”, while also urging the federal government to take action.

The protesters carried various placards with inscriptions such as “Amnesty leave our country in peace or in pieces,” “Amnesty International, you freeze when terrorists kill us,” “enough is enough” “Amnesty International, we know your mission,” among others.

Ejeh decried what he termed as the continuous attempt by AI to portray Nigeria as a country without respect for human rights.

He said over the years, Nigerians have watched as the Amnesty International tried to give the country a bad reputation internationally, saying that Nigerians now know the true motive of the organization.
