Organisers Suspend Resign or Resume Protest

The ResumeOrResign protests have been suspended following the Tuesday attack on them by hoodlums at the Wuse Market in Abuja.
The group announced the suspension of further protests on Wednesday at the unity fountain, Maitama, saying they needed to restrategise.
Members of the movement were attacked by a mob at the Wuse market when the co-convener of the protests led his group to the market to address traders.
The attack marked the second time since they started their protests last week.
The group, led by entertainer and activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, was reportedly attacked with stones after they protested at the popular Wuse market.
The group was reportedly attacked by hoodlums after their entrance into the market and gun shots were heard in the chaos that ensued.
Charly Boy was about addressing the people when some suspected hoodlums infiltrated the crowd, shouting ‘Sai Baba’ and hurling stones at the group.
He was said to have been rescued by policemen attached to the police station inside the market after pandemonium broke out with everyone running for dear life.
