Nigeria's Democracy Day Is a public holiday commemorated on June 12 to mark the restoration of democracy to the country.

This year, protestors are planning to boycott the public holiday by holding protests.

In the build-up to this year June 12 celebration, many political stakeholders and Nigerian Police condemned the protest because of the fear that the protest could be hijacked by hoodlums and lead to violence.

Many of the protesters were seen with placards calling for an end to bad governance in Nigeria.
