- MMWG said that those who are behind the move to unseat the present government are calling for a coup
The federal government has been called upon by the Muslim Media Watch Group (MMWG) to both unmask and deal with sponsors of the RevolutionNow protest, referring to it as an undemocratic process.
The MMWG's national coordinator, Mallam Ibrahim Abdullahi, said that anyone caught using such undemocratic process to change the government should be made to face the wrath of justice, adding that the protest is a breach of the law, Vanguard reports.
Abdullahi said: “Any attempt of anyone or group of people to use the undemocratic process to change the Government should face the wrath of the law."
He also called on the security forces to deal decisively with the such persons who are behind the protest.
The group's boss added: "These over-ambitious and unpatriotic Nigerians want to undo our progress as they did in 1976 against Murtala, 1985 against Buhari. We must stop them, as the unnecessary military coups brought us to ‘where we are now."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had accused the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, of being behind the recent RevolutionNow protest headed by Omoyele Sowore, a rights activist.
