Youths protesting under the banner of RevolutionNow have set up barricades along the Abuja International Airport Road to protest against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Many protesters are armed with ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ banners while they also set up bonfires on the highway.
The Federal Capital Territory Police Command, however, said the situation was under control.
Spokesman of the command, ASP Mariam Yusuf, said the protest started unusually about 5am, eliciting complaints from residents, who were hindered from going about their normal duties, a situation that was later brought under control by police operatives within the area.“The situation is calm now. There is presently free flow of traffic in the area”, she said.
