Pro-Buhari Protesters Storm Abuja, Ask Sick President Not To Resign

Charly Boy slumps as police dogs attack anti-Buhari protesters

Solomon Dalung had met with President Buhari yesterday in London while he was away in London to monitor IAAF world championship going on. Where the police suspect that hoodlums are trying to hijack the protest, it is the duty of the police to apprehend the hoodlums and those who break the law rather than generalise and thus brutalise innocent protesters.

President Buhari left the country on May 7 to resume treatment in London for an undisclosed illness, leaving Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in charge of the country's affairs.

The chairman of the senate committee on media and publicity urged the organizers of the Charlie boy led- protest to join other Nigerians in praying for the safe return of president Buhari for the sake of unity.

"The Police personnel intervened at the point that the concerned Nigerians Group lost control of the crowd and prevented miscreants, hoodlums and other criminal elements from hijacking the protest to cause mayhem and chaos".

This followed Charly Boy's swipe at the Senate for its dismissive position against calls by protesters for the president to resign or return to work.

However, the anti-Buhari protesters were conspicuously missing at the Unity Fountain where they had initially gathered since Monday.

Keyamo, who described the protest as unpopular among Nigerians said protesters should have campaigned for the return and prosecution of looters and not an ill-President.

"They should note that any mortal can find himself in the situation where one needs medical attention and more time to fully recuperate".

"Since the "Our-Mumu-Don-Do" protesters did not conduct themselves in such a manner as to disturb public peace, it is not right for the police to brutalize the people as they reportedly did".
