Earlier today, some angry Abuja residents of Gbagyi village blocked the convoy of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to protest alleged land grabbing by the Nigeria Military.
The residents had earlier stormed the National Assembly to register their displeasure at the military forceful takeover of their land and killings of community residents.
Osinbajo’s security aides could not appease the protesters, forcing the Vice President to step out of his car.
