Protesters: Buhari Holding Nigeria to Ransom

Security operatives watch protesters in Abuja

Essentially, the protest at the Unity Fountain is against Buhari staying for over 90 days in London, United Kingdom on a medical vacation.

He said he was hit with the butt of a rifle on his eye by a policeman and was quickly rushed to the hospital for treatment. Initially, they tried to stop us from going further.

"Consequently, members of the public, parents and guardians, religious/opinion leaders and other interest groups are advised to prevail on their children and wards, followers and adherents not to allow themselves to be used by any group to cause disturbance of public peace and break down of law and order".

Abdullahi said the protest was meant to force the president to resign or terminate his medical vacation.

Again, the police yesterday allegedly used force to disperse the protesters in Abuja.


In a bid to reduce tensions and calm Nigerians over the Police brutalisation of protesters demanding the resumption or resignation of President Buhari in Abuja, the Senate has released a statement through the Chairman, Committee on Media and Public Affairs Sen.

"This shows that, President Buhari's administration is still on course and the current distraction is unnecessary and inimical to nation building, patriotism must come to play", Ogenyi added.

"The police should review their rules of engagement and ensure that they are in line with that of modern democratic societies".

On Thursday, marking the fourth day of the protests, another group, Coalition for Good Governance and Change Initiative, on Thursday stormed Abuja to counter #ResumeOrResign protest, which began four days ago.

The pro-Buhari group argued that the sick President had not violated the Constitution, contrary to claims by the #ReturnorResign protesters. We know those that are behind the protest against the president.
