Democracy Day: Nigerians Take To The Street, Demand Buhari’s Resignation


    Millions of Nigerians have taken to the streets across the country, protesting insecurity, unemployment, grinding poverty, even as they demanded for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

    The protest is mainly by angry youths who defy police warning to take to the streets from Abuja to Lagos, Osun, Edo, Delta, Rivers, among other places.

    Report has it that the Police fired teargas to disperse protesters at Gudu area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja

    Protest there began around 8:30 am with the youth chanting Buhari must go now and with placards, carrying similar message

    Some of the protesters, however, ran helter-skelter when Police arrived the scene.

    In Port Harcourt, Rivers State, report has it that some civil society groups are gathering together to stage a protest in some parts of the city.

    Angry youths blocked the First East Circular Road, by Akpakpava Junction, in Benin, Edo State with used tyres, thereby slowing down vehicular traffic.

    In Lagos, protesters gathered at the Gani Fawehinmi Park at Ojora, despite the presence of heavy security men.

    The state Police Commissioner had earlier warned against any protest in the state.

    But this warning was defiled and although, some of the protesters were later arrested by the police the protest was still going on at the venue.

    Both in Lagos and Abuja, the protest was peaceful until security officers started picking the protesters up.

    Protests have also been reported in Ibadan, Osogbo, Akure and other major towns.
