Nigerian youths living in the United Kingdom (UK) have mounted siege both at the Nigeria House located in the posh Campden Hill area of the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in West London to protest the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sources said some of them have also mounted siege on Heathrow Airport for the same purpose.
The mission of the youth is coming against the backdrop of a call by a candidate in the last Presidential election in 2019, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, has called on Nigerians based in the United Kingdom to occupy the London hospital where President Muhammadu Buhari will be for his medical check-up.
Sowore said in a tweet: “Nigerians in 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.”
Special Adviser to Buhari on Media & Publicity had on Monday night announced that the president would travel on Tuesday travel to London, the United Kingdom, for a medical check-up.
He had said the president would return to the country during the second week of April.
