Breaking: Protest in Lagos over economic hardship

Members of  “Take It Back Movement,” a human rights group, are currently on the streets of Lagos State to voice their concerns over the escalating prices of food and the overall high cost of living gripping the nation.

The protest is ongoing currently at Ojuelegba under bridge in Lagos, where protesters brandished placards adorned with various inscriptions denouncing the current economic hardships faced by Nigerians.

Recall the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Fayoade, had  on Sunday, charged protesters not to violate the rights of others while carrying out their protest for any reason.

Also, The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had scheduled a nationwide strike for 27 Feb and 28 Feb to protest against the current economic challenges facing Nigerians.
