A protesting crowd of Nigerians in the United Kingdom has stormed the Abuja House, 2 Campden Hill, Kensington in London, demanding that Nigeria’s sick President, Muhammadu Buhari who is currently in London for medical aid return to Nigeria for his treatment.
Human rights activist and convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore had earlier tweeted; “#BREAKING Nigerians in the UK are now at the “Abuja House” residence of @mbuhari protesting against his medical tourism and trying to chase him out of the UK. #BuhariMustGo#RevolutionNow“.
Recall that the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari had traveled to London for medical aid less than 24 hours prior to commencement of the Nigerian Doctors Strike over non-payment of salaries by his government on April 1.
Also, a former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, through his Twitter handle had said, the protesters in London assembled with a mission “to chase the president back home”.
“The Police came but the #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon went on. A frightened @MBuhari refused to come,” he tweeted.
The National Chairman of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore had on Tuesday advised Nigerians in the UK to occupy the London hospital where President Buhari plans to have his medical checkup.
Sowore had described the medical trip to London as a waste of resources, noting that the President should do his checkup in the “world-class” hospital he built in Nigeria since he came to power.
In a separate tweet earlier, Reno said, “The eagle has landed to harass the ego out of London. It is happening people. #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon is on. God willing, I will see you at Abuja House, 2 Campden Hill, Kensington, London W8 7AD by 12 noon.
“We will observe #COVID-19 protocols even as we chase @MBuhari back home”.
The human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore also advised Nigerians in the UK to occupy the Abuja House in London.
He wrote on Twitter, “Nigerians in the UK must #occupy the hospital where sickly @mbuhari is wasting Nigeria’s resources and the Nigeria embassy as well as Abuja House in London, let Buhari return home and do a medical check in the ‘world-class’ hospital he built since coming to power. #Buharimustgo!”
