The removal of fuel subsidy sparked a Nation-wide protest with concerned Nigerians outside the country lending their loud voices. The price of petrol sky-rocketed from N65.00 to about N141.00 after the removal.
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on January 9, 2012 embarked on its indefinite Nation-wide strike which is said will last until the Government returns back the petrol subsidy.
Across the globe, most of the #OccupyNigeria protests have been relatively peaceful, although reports have indicated at least 3 people have been killed and some others have been injured.
In Lagos, a Police Officer shot and killed Ademola Aderinde on Monday, Jaunuary 9, 2012 in Ogba during the 1st day of protests in Lagos. The officer has since been arrested and is expected to be charged with murder. Also in Kano, the police reportedly fired unto ‘occupiers’, injuring over 10 people.
