I have spent over 40 years of my life leading protest for a better society, and I can tell you that street protest will not change our leaders. My father always told me back then that whenever I see injustice, I should fight it because it may come to affect me someday too, and that is my motivation for fighting injustice over these years.

On several occasions, I have been tortured by the Nigerian police and the military for standing up to authorities to ask questions. I am not a professional protester, so now I have decided to use other means to hold leaders accountable“, he said.
