Parade protest


Protest At Abuja House Has Taken A New Turn, Read What Was Written In The Placard This Man Displayed

Nigerians living in London took to the street for a peaceful protest after they got an information that the President of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari will be traveling to the UK go a two week medical check up. The whole protest was instigated by the Former Aide to Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri who is currently on exile and calls himself 'Buhari Tormentor'. Himself and other top comrades like Omoleye Sowore mobilized some Nigerians in UK who stormed Abuja House where the President is believed to be having some rest and also seeking medical attention.

As the protest enters day 2, some Nigerians in UK stormed Buhari's residence in Kensington, London for a peaceful protest. The Facebook user, Rose P. Graham posted a video of the protest at the front of the gate, showing others carrying placards with different inscription.


The major aim of this protest was to heat Buhari up and force him to come back to Nigeria and conduct his medical checkup here and that was why #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon trended on the 2nd of April, 2021, but from the placards displaced during the protest today suggests that it has taken a new turn after the writer of this article, ReignJerry spotted some writeup in the placards some Nigerians in the UK displayed. One of the thing I saw in the placard was that the protesters were trying to say that the amended 1999 constitution is fraudulent.

What actually caught my attention was when I saw what was written in the placard below. The keywords are 'Southwest', 'Yoruba Nation', 'Regional Autonomy' and 'Independence'. The protesters obviously diverted from calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to go back to Nigeria to agitating for a Yoruba Nation. The person who wrote on the placard is obviously asking the Government to grant autonomy to the Southwest region and independence to the 'Oduduwa Republic' agitators.

Don't you think they are going too far with this their protest? From HarassBuhariOutOf London' to requesting for Yoruba Nation.
