Minutes after President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the nation in commemoration of Nigeria’s 61st Independence anniversary, massive anti- government protest embroiled as protesters took over the roads in Abuja.

A detachment of police which arrived the scene, removed the roadblock and hauled teargas canisters to disperse the protesters.
