Niger Delta youths, who are supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday shut down some busy roads in Central Business District, Abuja to express their support for the ailing president.
The president recently clocked 100 days in London hospital where he has been receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment. Similar protests had taken place in the past one week by several pro and anti-Buhari supporters to either demand his resumption or resignation (for anti) or to remain in London and get well before returning to Nigeria.
The youths, who claimed to be from Niger Delta region, staged the protest under the protection of policemen and civil defence corp officers.
Led by the convener, Michael Johnny, the supporters were armed with placards with various inscriptions.
For several hours, business and official activities in and around federal secretariat and three arms zone, Abuja, were disrupted as the protesters blocked the roads and vowed to continue their action until the Charly boy group quit their hate campaign against the ailing president.
