While Nigerians are quietly enjoying a day off work on Friday, October 1st, being the nation’s Independence Day, some anti Buhari government protesters, earlier hours of today (Friday), gathered at the Airport Road in Abuja, calling for the resignation of the country’s first citizen, President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a similar development, some angry protesters, also gathered at the Ojota area of Lagos, with placards in hand, demanding that ‘Buhari-Must-Go’; lamenting the state of Nigeria’s economy, and the reckless killing of citizens across states of the federation. The agitators did not also mince words when they openly declared, ‘enough is enough.’
Soon after their convergence however, security operatives were present to forestall any breakdown of law and order; while some canisters of tear gas were said to be used to disperse Abuja protesters.
No one has been confirmed arrested and the Nigeria Police Force, is yet to issue a statement to that effect.
