The call by some Nigerians for President Muhammadu Buhari to resume or resign seems to have taken another dimension with a group purportedly planning to hold a night protest at his residence in London.
A Facebook post by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, which he credited to a certain Uwakwe-mangse Hanna, read that “There will be a Night Vigil Resume or Resign protest at Abuja House in London This Friday 18th August.
The London Metropolitan police have given us the permit to go ahead. If you are Nigerian and live in the UK, this is the time to make yourself available and save Nigeria.
Refreshments will be made available but if you want to come with your own that’s ok.
According to the statement, the group has also been granted parking permission to come out with their cars for the protest as well.
It’s an all night vigil. Come with your candle and torch or use the one on your phones.
Members of the group also accused officer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of paying people £200 each to do a counter protest
We heard APC officers in the UK are trying to pay people £200 (per head) for a counter protest. Unfortunately for them, the police are going to be there live for our protection. Any counter protest they will be arrested and charged with obstruction.
Come one, come all. (Credit: Uwakwe-mangse Hanna).
