OPC, Jonathan Campaigners Protest, Demand Jega’s Sack

 

The Oodua Peoples Congress and the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation on Monday morning storm the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, leading to heavy traffic built up along the highway.

The groups are demanding the sack of the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, before the March 28 elections.

The campaign group and the members of the OPC were chanting anti-Jega songs, given reasons why Jega should be sacked.

The OPC members carried guns, cutlasses, pocket knifes among other weapons, occupying one end of the busy highway while some members of the groups harassed some motorists and passers-by plying the road.

Some people, who were clad in black vest, said to be beneficiaries of the SURE-P, also constituted a sizable portion of the protesters.

The protesters took time to distribute leaflets containing seven reasons why the INEC boss should be sacked.

The leaflet also contained what the OPC described as the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan and why the President should be re-elected.

The protesters are said to be on their way to the National Stadium, Surulere, through the Ikorodu Road, where they will hold a rally.

Details later.
