Newspaper vendors in Abuja have taken to streets to protest the killing of one of their colleagues, Ifeanyi Okereke Elechi.
The vendor, Ifeanyi Elechi, was said to have been shot dead on Thursday evening by a security aide to Gbajabiamila.
Scores of vendors took to the streets on Friday to protest the killing and demand for justice.
The protesters are members of the Abuja Newspapers Distributors Association (ANDA). The peaceful protest started after members of ANDA converged at the distribution center in Area 1.
They were armed with placards, some of which read: “#Vendors lives matter,” “#NASS must take action,” “Justice for Elechi,” “Elechi’s death must not be in vain,” among others.
