June 12: Fight Breaks Out among Pro-Buhari Protesters over Sharing of Money

As protests continue across the nation today against President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, the protest organised by his supporters turned violent over sharing of money.


Fight broke out on Saturday among members of pro-Buhari protesters, #IStandWithBuhari at the Unity Fountain in Abuja.

Leaders of the group were seen in a heated exchange of words over the sharing of monetary resources meant for organising the counter protests.

Hundreds of pro-Buhari supporters had arrived at the Unity Fountain on Saturday to show their solidarity with Buhari.

There have been mass protests in various states across the country and in the diaspora on Saturday (today), in commemoration of Democracy Day.

Several digital flyers, widely circulated on social media on Friday, publicised meeting points in Lagos, Gombe, Calabar (Cross River), Yola (Adamawa), Bauchi, Abeokuta (Ogun), Yenagoa (Bayelsa), Port Harcourt (Rivers), Ibadan (Oyo), Ilorin (Kwara), Enugu, Akure (Ondo), Yobe, and Zaria (Kaduna).

The security agencies, including the police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Department of State Services have deployed undercover agencies to prevent a breakdown of law and order during the June 12 protests.
