The protest, which held in Abuja, on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, saw the young people holding up banners, conveying different messages, such as, "Falana stop blackmailing Nigerian military" and ”Falana enough is enough”.

The group, which was led by one Solomon Semaka, kept chanting "enough is enough" during the rally.

Falana and the Department of State Service (DSS) have been at loggerheads for keeping his client, Omoyele Sowore, who's the convener of #RevolutionNow Movement, in custody despite court orders to release him.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria also recently sued the Nigerian Army over its planned "Operation Positive Identification" which he said is unconstitutional.
