Earlier today, in Abuja and some parts of Nigeria, protesters converged to commemorate the first anniversary of the #RevolutionNow protests that saw a cross-section of Nigerians demanding better governance from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari on 5 August 2019. This did not go down well with the security agencies who descend on protesters in an effort to stop the protest.
