Heavily armed Police operatives on Saturday morning forcefully dispersed June 12 protesters in the Gudu area of the Federal Capital Territory when they stormed the area and started firing teargas canisters.
Before then, the protest which started at about 08:30 am was going on peacefully and smoothly with the protesters, mostly youths, expressing their dissatisfaction with the state of the nation.
The protesters, who chanted “Buhari must go”, “Say no to injustice”, amongst other solidarity phrases, took to their heels and scampered for safety when the security operatives started shooting.
Among those who were leading the protest are social activists Omoyele Sowore and Deji Adeyanju.
