June 12: Abeokuta deserted over ‘Buhari Must Go protest’ [PHOTOS]


Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Saturday refused to come out for their daily activities as a solidarity to the June 12 nationwide protest.

iexclusive News Nigeria report that the people of Ogun State did not come out for their businesses as a matter of solidarity to the June 12 #Buharimustgo nationwide protests

This online news medium gathered that Abeokuta metropolis turned a ‘ghost city’ with shops and malls kept under lock and key.

Parks and garages in Abeokuta and other major cities were empty, even as taxi drivers and okada riders stayed in their houses.


The ever-busy Panseke, Omida, Lafenwa, Kuto, Itoku, Sapon markets and others in the state capital were without buyers or sellers.

Many petrol stations refused to open for business, while some render skeletal services.


Few people who went out resorted to trekking as they found it extremely difficult to get cabs or bikes to transport them.


Locals, who spoke to our correspondent said “we prefer to be in our houses than to come out and die.”


Meanwhile, some Yoruba nation agitators stormed Abeokuta on Saturday in continuation of their peaceful rally.


Likewise, another set of #Buharimustgo protesters were also seen at the NUJ Secretariat, Okelewo around 10am.


This is coming despite Governor Dapo Abiodun’s plea that residents of the state should not engaged in any protest as it could be hijacked by hoodlums.
