Reacting to the attack, one of the leaders of the anti-Buhari protest and convener of Concerned Nigerians group, Deji Adeyanju wrote on micro blogging site, Twitter: ” We just went to Wuse market for mobilization against 100 days event tomorrow & a regular face at Unity Fountain brought thugs to attack us.
” They attacked us with Police on Tuesday. Tried to attack us at Unity Fountain with their government sponsored thugs. Today is Wuse Market.
” Charly Boy’s car was damaged by the thugs. This is a senseless government. #ResumeOrResign.
” We had finished mobilization when the guy brought the thugs to attack us.
“We had finished the mobilization in Wuse Market before they brought the thugs to attack us. NO GOING BACK #ResumeOrResign“, Deji wrote on Twitter.
