ABOUT six persons were reported to have been dead when pro-President Muhammadu Buhari attacked a group, Our Mumu Don Do led by Charles Oputa, popularly referred to as Charlie boy.
According to an eyewitness, this happened when Charley Boy was about leading other protesters with various placards to Wuse Market in Abuja, on Tuesday, as continuation of their protest asking President Buhari to either resume and continue from where he stopped or resign.
However it is reported that about six persons were feared dead from both parties, while others alleged that four people were killed as different weapons were freely used before the arrival of combined security operatives.
Charley Boy and four others who sustained serious injuries have reportedly been rushed to undisclosed hospital for medical attention.
The market has however been closed down to forestall escalation of the civil unrest.
