It was gathered that the #IStandWithBuhari protesters were employed as a counter-measure against those who had vowed to protest against bad governance in Nigeria.
Eyewitnesses revealed that the group's leadership were seen engaging in a heated arguement on how the money which was paid by their employers would be shared, which eventually degenerated into a brawl.
