Youth Besiege Abuja, Block Roads Celebrating Buhari’s Victory
Some youth in their numbers, yesterday, besieged major streets, especially in the Central Business District, Wuse Market, Jabi, Utako in Abuja celebrating President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the polls.
Brandishing sticks, brooms and cutlasses, the youth also blocked entry and exit points into the city.
The bonnets and windshields of some motorists’ vehicles that did not chant ‘sai baba’ and did not make the NextLevel gesture by raising four fingers were smashed.
The chaos continued down to Mararaba market as they pulled down campaign billboards of opposition candidates and set them ablaze.
In some instances, they sat on some vehicles’ bonnets for minutes, dancing and chanting ‘sai baba’ while they brandished brooms, the APC symbol.
They also handed motorists brooms as permit and those who refused to collect were harassed and delayed passage.
Commercial tricycle and motorcycle riders also joined in the wild celebration, as they drove recklessly, performing stunts on the Airport Road, Obafemi Awolowo Way along Jabi-Berger roundabout, Abuja-Keffi Road and several other locations in the FCT.
They rode to places where they had been banned by authorities from accessing as other residents moved about cautiously and in fear.
A motorist, John Yahaya, said Buhari’s supporters were free to celebrate but harassing other citizens who were going about their legitimate businesses was not acceptable.
He said their action was provocative but thanked God that nobody confronted them as any altercation could result to violence.
