UPDATE: Police and protesters converge as Lagos’ #IStandWithNigeria kicks off.

At the Lagos leg of the nationwide anti-government protest, police officers deployed to maintain security are momentarily more than the protesters.

 

TheCable’s reporter at the National Stadium, Surulere, says there are over 20 police vans strategically positioned around the area.

 

Police had begun converging at the National Stadium axis as early as 6am on Monday, the reporter observed.

 

While there are not less than 200 police officers scattered around the area, the number of protesters is less than that figure.

 

The march has just begun and protesters are heading to National Theatre, Iganmu.

 

The protest is being led by Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, Gbenga Sesan, executive director of Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN), and representatives of Enough is Enough (EiE) Nigeria.

 

Comedian, Seyi Law, as promised, showed up at the protest.
