Buhari visits Lagos before June 12 protest

President Muhammadu Buhari will visit Lagos on Thursday to launch the Deep Blue Project of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

The visit was confirmed on Wednesday by the state police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi.

The Deep Blue Project is meant to strengthen national security on land, sea and air as initiated by the Federal Ministry of Transportation and the Federal Ministry of Defence.

However, June 12 protest is scheduled to take place at Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos, two days after Buhari’s visit.

Earlier today, the reception organised in Ikeja for the visit of Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, that was disrupted by thunderstorms.

Baba who visited Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the State House in Marina was expected to address men of the command when a heavy rain started and dispersed guests from the venue.

The police had blocked a major highway to allow Baba smooth passage. But the blockade caused serious traffic along the Ikorodu expressway, with commuters booing Baba when his convoy passed.
