Three different groups of Nigerian protesters set to storm United Nations General Assembly in New York on Friday as Buhari addresses the UN Assembly.


Three separate Nigerian groups will be protesting on Friday as President Buhari would be addressing the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Two of the protesting groups have been mapped out to protest against Buhari's regime and failures while the remaining group will protest in support of Buhari

One of the groups, the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination, is headed by Yoruba Historian, Prof Banji Akintoye.

Also, activists under the aegis of TakeItBack Movement have mobilised for a protest at UN headquarters in New York with demands.

Meanwhile, a third group 'One Nigeria Group,’ will express their support for President Buhari while promoting the concept of unity in diversity.

In a statement on Thursday, Akintoye explained that NINAS’ protest tagged, ‘Million-Man Freedom March,’ is to show the world “the crimes against humanity, attacks on press freedom, free speech and other criminalities being aided by the Buhari-led government of Nigeria.”

He also said the agitators “are demanding the conduct of a regional referendum so that the indigenous people can decide on their nationhood”.

The renowned historian accused the Nigerian government of sponsoring the counter-protest at UN headquarters, alleging that black foreigners living in the United States of America were “hired at $500 per head.”
