Anti-Buhari protesters, led by popular musician and entertainer, Charles Oputa a.k.a Charly Boy, yesterday, suspended their protest indefinitely. The suspension is coming a day after members of the group escaped lynching in the hands of pro-Buhari protesters at Wuse market, Abuja.
This came on a day hundreds of youths from the Niger Delta staged a protest in Abuja in honour of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying those pressuring the President to resume or resign as a result of ill-health were only playing a political script as the President has not committed any crime or breached any constitutional provision.
‘Resume or Resign’ and ‘Our Mumu don do,’ leaders, Deji Adeyanju & Charly Boy Leader of the anti-Buhari protesters, acting under the aegis of “OurMumuDonDo” movement, Charly Boy, told newsmen at Unity Fountain in Abuja that “the next line of action would be made known in the days ahead.” He said some members of the group had received death threats but vowed that such threats would not deter the group from carrying out its plans.
He said: “We are not deterred by the intimidation and harassment by the sponsored thugs and we cannot be cowed by a few group of people.
What government want to do is to ensure that we have a clash with the hired crowd and we will not allow that to happen.” It took the intervention of the police to halt the attack, which eventually led to the sudden closure of the market by the authorities. However, some Nigerians who reacted to the attack, described the action of the attackers as unwarranted and barbaric.
