- By Bertram Nwannekanm­a

CIVIL rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Associatio­n of Nigeria ( HURIWA) has asked law enforcemen­t agencies in Nigeria to obey the constituti­on and put a permanent stop to pre- trial media parade of accused persons.

In a statement issued to mark the one year anniversar­y of the nationwide # ENDSARS Protest, the group through its National coordinato­r Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, said the continuous parade of suspects increasing­ly portrays Nigeria as a Banana Republic, whereby the constituti­on is disregarde­d by the same publicly paid employees who should enforce the law.
