…As ‘Buhari Must Go’ Protesters Storm Abuja

The Lagos state police command carried out its threat not to allow any form of protest in the state anymore on Saturday when it fired teargas canisters to disperse peaceful protesters at Ojota.

As early as 5am on Saturday, the police stationed armed personnel carriers at Freedom Park, Ojota with several patrol vehicles fully loaded with policemen armed to the teeth, to prevent the June 12 agitators from gaining entrance into the park.

The Commissioner of police, Hakeem Odumosu issued a statement yesterday through the PPRO, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi that the command was not aware of any planned  protest.

The protesters according to the news monitored on Channelstv were seen marching towards Toll gate end of Lagos /Expressway, chanting solidarity songs before they were forcefully dispersed.

Meanwhile, a protest led by Deji Adeyanju and others civil rights groups in Abuja was peaceful without police harassment as at the time of filling this report.

Most of the placards by the protesters read; “ Buhari Must Go”
