#BuhariMustGo protesters have stormed the nation’s federal capital, as the nation marks its 61st independence day anniversary.
Scores of youths came out on Friday morning all carrying placards which had the inscriptions #BuhariMustGo. The hashtag stems from the growing frustration about the state of affairs of the country and the capacity of the present administration led by Muhammadu Buhari to turn the nation around.
The protesters carried a large banner with #RevolutionNow written on it while moving in the streets.
They also burnt tyres in the middle of the road.
However, when the police arrived at the scene of the protest, they immediately fired teargas at them.
The federal government had said there would be heightened security in the days leading to the country’s 61st independence anniversary.
It, therefore, asked residents of the federal capital territory (FCT) and its environs not to panic.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
