Sympathizers of President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, August 15 attacked the Our Mumu Don Do protesters. The anti-Buhari protesters had left their meeting point at Unity Fountain, Abuja and decided to take their campaign to the popular Wuse Market in the Federal Capital Territory.
On arrival, they were greeted with cheers and large crowd swarmed over them. But as soon as sympathizers of the president sighted them, the situation turned ugly as the protesters and their supporters were stoned.
Nigeria police quickly took over the market, while gunshots and tear gas were fired to scare trouble makers and avert crisis.
In a series of tweets by one of the leaders of the ‘ResumeOrResign’ group, Deji Adeyanju, some youths attacked them when they moved to the market in the course of their protest.
