The National Consultative Front, NCFront jointly led by Rt Hon Ghali Naaba and Prof Pat Utomi said it is compelled to condemn in the strongest terms the alleged use of live ammunition on Mr Omoyele Sowore while leading other unarmed Protesters to express their dissatisfaction over the growing spate of insecurity and anarchy in the country

It has been reported that Mr Omoyele Sowore received treatment from undisclosed location after being shot in his hip by a detachment of police operatives dispatched by the police commissioner of Abuja to stop the peaceful protest of the civil society Activists

In a statement  by Dr Tanko Yunusa
Head, Public Affairs Bureau, National Consultative Front, NCFront, the body 
 stated that the police should have outgrown the "sort of savagery and barbaric action" exhibited in handling the peaceful protests, advising that a more professional way of guiding defenceless citizens' protests should be adopted. 

"The shooting of defenceless and unarmed Citizens and Civilians is most unacceptable to the NCFront and the Front shall continue to resist it until the police purge itself of such cruel methods of engaging protesting Civilians

"To this end, we demand an immediate Apology and Sack of the trigger happy officer, who opened fire on Sowore and other for this needless and unprovoked gun attack as well as the best of urgent medical treatment and Compensation for Sowore and other Activists who sustained varying degrees of injuries from police attack and disruption of the peaceful protest," it concluded.
