During a protest with his children, Kano-based Algerian human rights activist, Jamal Abdul Qadir, has decried persistent arrest by the security operatives in Kano, over alleged terrorism, DailyTrust reports.

He said: “If my human rights activism is unacceptable to the security agents in Nigeria, let them deport me back to my country otherwise I will embark on indefinite hunger strike on the 12th of this month.”

.

.

He said he has been living in the country for the past 25 years without record of any illegal act, saying for the past 3 years, that peace has eluded him as the security keep arresting him on charge of being a terrorist.

.

.

He added, “They know that I’m not a terrorist my only offence is that I do speak against human rights violations on both immigrants and citizens and I do report such violations to Amnesty International, that is why they are arresting me and raiding my house at night.”

.

He added that he was not living illegally in Nigeria, “I had to follow the legal procedure to live in this country and I married a Katsina woman and we are blessed with three children.”

.

.

The human rights activist said his passport and all other documents were seized by the security, saying that was a violation of his rights. He further avers that in as much as human rights would be violated in the state, he would not keep mute.

.

.

“I will speak out against all forms of human rights violation even if the security will gun me down.”
