Nnamdi Felix / Abuja
The protesters’ march to the Eagle Square was foiled this afternoon by the heavy presence of armed security personnel who were rehearsing for the activities marking the Armed Forces remembrance day at the Three Arms Zone just opposite the Eagle Square in Abuja.
Protesters under the leadership of the NLC and TUC made a detour at the Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent axis, very close to the Federal Secretariat, to the AP Plaza Junction, also in Wuse II District.
The labour leaders addressed protesters with Mr. Bombastic and former House of Representatives, Hon Obayangbon from Edo state mesmerizing the protesters with his usual bombastic English.
The protest wore a carnival outlook as the leaders called on the protesters to relax and go home for today and reconvene tomorrow.
Bikers under the leadership of “Area Boy” Charley Boy Oputa made nerve cracking displays.
