#IStandWithNigeria: Protest also held in Uyo as pro-Buhari group held counter-protest [See reports from the protest nationwide]

As promised, the #IStandWithNigeria protest was held amidst all setbacks and all pressure by the Nigerian security agents to halt the protest. Some celebrities like Mercy Aigba, Charly Boy and others were also spotted at the protest today.

The protest was held in Lagos, Abuja and Uyo. 

Also, the pro-Buhari supporters also held their protest in support of President Buhari today in Abuja.

The announcement of the protest was made some days ago and the climax of the announcement was when legendary singer, Tuface, announced himself as a leader and the protest's convener. 

Meanwhile, after pressure by security operative, Tuface, back down from the protest and announced the cancellation of the protest on Saturday night - an announcement that sent in mixed reactions from Nigerians with different views and perception.

Later we all knew that the protest's convener was not Tuface but the singer only keyed into a movement that was started by a group called Enough Is Enough. 

Many began to wonder why Tuface cancelled a protest that he was not a convener to, many also felt Tuface was pressurized by security operatives into backing down, some also believed the singer was arrested by the DSS though Tuface later denied reports of his arrest.

After Tuface's announcement to back down, the main converners of the event announced that the protest will hold despite Tuface's withdrawal. See photos of the protest below
