CHARLY BOY ALMOST LYNCHED BY BUHARI SUPPORTERS



     Charly Boy


Supporters of ailing president Buhari attacked members of the #ResumeOrResign movement led by Charly Boy, at the popular Wuse Market in Abuja. Buhari Supporters pelted Charly and his band of protesters with stones, narrowly escaping mob action on Tuesday. Authorities have shut down the market over a tribal clash between traders and protesters urging President Muhammadu Buhari to return to Nigeria or resign.

According to a trader who witnessed the incident, Charley Boy and a group of protesters came to the market with some cameramen to demonstrate in a market dominated by Hausas.
“I was standing in front of my shop when I saw him running for his dear life, being chased by those youth,” a trader at the market said.“They nearly lynched him because those youth almost overpowered police security near him.” 

Recall that the second day of the protests turned rowdy when policemen fired tear gas canisters at protesters, injuring one person in the process in an incident condemned by the Senate. Officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, and anti-riot policemen reportedly had a torrid time trying to curtail the clashes which later resulted in the breakout of an inter-tribal clash in the market.

Eyewitnesses say hoodlums took advantage of the opportunity and began to throw stones “at the Igbo people around the area” causing chaos and forced the police to shut down the market to forestall mayhem.

Last Friday which marked the fifth day of the rally saw the #ResumeOrResign protest disrupted by a dozen members of a group sympathetic to President Muhammadu Buhari chanting ‘Sai Baba Sai Baba’, in a scene which almost snowballed into a clash but for the swift intervention of security operatives.
