Recall that after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in New York for the high-level meetings of the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, a group stage a Pro-Buhari and One Nigeria March opposite the United Nations Headquarters in New York, United States.
The first group, led by Emmanuel Duara, the group, named ‘One Nigeria Group,’ expressed their support for President Buhari and the concept of unity in diversity.
Duara, who spoke to reporters said: “We are the biggest country in Africa and the biggest black country in the world. Whatever is going on among tribes in Nigeria, let us sit down and settle it.”
From pictures and videos shared online, the group members waved the Nigerian flag, wore white T-shirts, and displayed banners announcing their commitment to one Nigeria.
The group members carried placards on which was written, “Stronger together”, “Unity in diversity”, “Genocide in Eastern Nigeria plain propaganda”, “Nigerians want national unity, not secession”, “Nigerian Christians not targets of genocide or ethnic cleansing”.
However, from the video that is circulating on social media, an unidentified man, who is one of the pro-buhari protesters said "I am not a Nigerian, we were paid to do this protest. I don't know what the protest is all about but what I know is that they told me that I am needed for this protest"
