BREAKING: 30 Arrested As #Revolutionnow Protest Hits Lagos (Updated: Thursday, 1st October 2020, 12:55 PM)


Hundreds of protesters on Thursday stormed the streets of Lagos State to express their displeasure against bad governance in Nigeria.

The protesters marched from the streets of Ojota to Maryland in Lagos.

They were seen chanting songs of solidarity.

The PUNCH gathered that no fewer than 30 protesters have been arrested by security operatives.

The Coalition for Revolution codenamed #RevolutionNow had in a statement before the protest called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to resign.

The statement read in part, “The Coalition for Revolution is calling on all Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to come out en masse on, October 1, and participate in a massive peaceful protest to demand the reversal of anti-people policies implemented by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

“These harsh policies that have bored a burdensome hole into the pockets of the Nigerian people are coming at a time when citizens are recovering from the adverse effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, a global health crisis that was also mismanaged by the Buhari government, plunging already struggling citizens into deeper financial problems.

“It also comes at a time when there is an unprecedented dictatorial-style crackdown on free speech, dissent, activism, journalism and the right to associate and congregate peacefully and protest.”
