A police officer made an unthinkable decision after observing the high traffic created by the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protesters’ blockage.
The policeman was sitting on the ground in the middle of the road under the hot sun, begging with the demonstrators to step aside so that traffic might continue along without difficulty.
“I beg of you to, if it would be possible move aside for us,” he said.
But the obstinate demonstrators were unable to convince the officer.
They resolutely defended their position, claiming, “It won’t be possible.”
The demonstrators, who were dressed in black and scarlet, could be heard yelling and waving signs that said, among other things, “Our Leaders Aren’t Patriotic,” “No More Suffering,” and “Thieves in Suite” as they addressed the administration with their grievances and demands.
They obstructed the main entrances to the capital while also calling for lower living expenses, an end to corruption, and better government.
No vehicle could move on the Giffard Road, Liberation Road, or Olusegun Obasanjo Highway since they were all stopped.
When the police erected barriers across the road leading to the Jubilee House, preventing them from determining their final destination, they were forced to resort to this.
