Youths under #RevolutionNow stage early morning protest against Buhari in Abuja
Some youths, under the #RevolutionNow, were said to have blocked the airport road, Abuja early Monday morning, protesting that President Muhammadu Buhari must go.
The protesters, who were reported to have carried placards with various inscriptions, demanding the sack of President Buhari were also said to have made a bonfire along the busy expressway, popularly called Umaru Yar’Adua Way.
However, as at 6.30 am, motorists had free passage on the expressway to the city Centre, and there were no traces of protest along the way, from the popular Aco bus stop, close to the Airport, to Lugbe, City gates and the City centres.
However, information gathered revealed that the mild protest might have taken place in a remote part of the road as early as 5.30 am. A trending clip on social media also showed that the action took place before the daybreak.
One of the leaders of the group, Michael Ademola, who spoke on phone said the protest started before 6 am, and was very peaceful.
He said: “As early as 6 am we gathered at the airport road to protest against insecurity and hardship in the country. It was peaceful. We demanded that the president should resign. Nigerians no longer feel secured and are scared to travel. These are the grudges the people had and came out to express their grievance. People are really angry. People that protested are from different settlement in the FCT.”
