The convoy of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was on Tuesday blocked by aggrieved protesters along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Expressway in Abuja.
The protesters blocked the motorcade at Goza Village as the Vice President was heading to the airport.
Gbagyi village residents had gathered on the airport road protesting the alleged invasion of their land by the military.
Osinbajo’s security aides could not appease the protesters, forcing the Vice President to step out of his car.
The Vice President’s Special Assistant on Media on Publicity, Laolu Akande, also confirmed the report in a tweet, saying, “On his way to the airport just now, VP Osinbajo runs into a group of FCT residents protesting alleged land takeover bid by the military.
“He gets down, engages the people, proposing to meet with their leaders on the matter & intervene with a view to finding an amicable solution.”
