One person was today injured in Abuja when policemen fired tear gas canisters at protesters demanding the return of President Muhammadu Buhari who has been on medical leave in London since May 2017.
The wounded protester was taken to a clinic at the Federal Secretariat complex, a few kilometres from the scene of the incident.
The coalition members were having their sit-out at the Millennium Park opposite the Unity Fountain, Maitama, Abuja when the armed policemen allegedly fired tear gas canisters to disperse them.
The protesters, however, braved the assault and continued with their meeting for about an hour.
The protesters who are members of various civil society organizations were demanding that President Buhari should return to the country or resign if he is incapacitated.
