Anti-Buhari protesters troop out for fourth day

Adeyanju also slammed the police and criticised those that have condemned the protests, saying that "posterity will be unkind" to them. I once said he should resign and allow another person to take over.

The pro-Buhari protests come on the heels of demonstrations organized a few days ago by pro-democracy groups to demand President Buhari's resumption or resignation.

President Buhari had on May 7 left Nigeria for London on medical trip to treat an undisclosed ailment.

Obi said the president had transferred power to the acting president.

Oputa condemned the reaction of the police on Tuesday, recounting how protesters were attacked by anti-riot policemen with tear gas and water cannons.

Maverick singer and social crusader, Charles Okputa (aka Charly boy), who has been the major leader in the protest against President Muhammadu Buhari's long stay in London was yesterday attacked by a policeman with the butt of the gun which resulted in his slump.

"The police should review their rules of engagement and ensure that they are in line with that of modern democratic societies".

The group, like the former, was seen being given adequate police protection.

Meanwhile, the Arewa Youth Forum (AYF) has accused northern governors and South West politicians of being responsible for the protest against Buhari.

The Senate has said that the president will not resign as his absence is still within constitutional rights.

Solomon Dalung had met with President Buhari yesterday in London while he was away in London to monitor IAAF world championship going on.

Keyamo, who described the protest as unpopular among Nigerians said protesters should have campaigned for the return and prosecution of looters and not an ill-President. "As a group, we are giving them seven days to call their attack dogs to order or we will have no option than to expose them".
