Pro-Buhari supporters storm unity fountain, anti-Buhari supporters abscond

Some Nigerians have shut down Abuja, the nation’s capital in support of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

The protesters, under the aegis of Coalition for Good Governance and Change Initiative have converged at the Unity Fountain, Abuja singing solidarity songs in support of the Nigerian government.

They are currently marching to the Presidential Villa.

Some of the placards being displayed at the protest ground include: ‘the system is working, no cause for alarm, ‘we repose confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari,’ our president is recuperating, Nigeria is moving forward.

Meanwhile, checks by this reporter show that the anti-Buhari protesters have deserted the Unity Fountain.
