Days after protests on the streets of Abuja, Lagos, and some states, over the brutality of policemen, protesters are now calling on the review of the lawmaker’s salary.
The protesters, in their thousands on Thursday morning, marched to the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.
Vehicular movements and other activities around the Federal Secretariat area were grounded as the protesters blocked the entrance of the National Assembly, chanting songs of solidarity.
Meanwhile, in a statement released by the FCT administration on Thursday, October 15, 2020, the security committee decided at its October 13 meeting that the protests are in violation of safety rules.
The committee said the peaceful protesters have been behaving in an unruly manner and caused inconveniences to others in the capital city.
The committee also said the protesters have failed to comply with COVID-19 guidelines regulating public gatherings.
