The protesters who were coming from Mararaba axis of the federal capital territory (FCT) were arrested around the Unity Fountain and whisked away in police trucks.

Security agents have begun stop and search operations at some locations in the city to identify and arrest protesters.

The conveners of the protest on Tuesday announced details of the mass action, including convergence points in 10 different states across the nation.

Omoyele Sowore, an activist, is the convener of the #RevolutionNow protest which he birthed in 2019.

Sowore had called for the demonstration against “bad governance and corruption” in the Buhari administration.

But he is not participating in the protest owing to a court order preventing him from joining mass gatherings — a part of his bail condition after he had spent over 130 days in detention.

    What our government is doing to her citizens is very bad and calls for psychological mental re-examination, in other to evaluate their level of reasoning and mental wellness. In a country with gross misappropriation of funds at the corridor of power, can’t we speak anymore in this country against the ill treatment of our government? Where then is the oneness we proclaimed,where is the independence we all yarn for ,where is the freedom of speech and information systems, where do we go from here!! Which way NIGERIANS?!!
