June 12 Protest: Youths Defy Gov Wike’s Order, Stage Protest in Rivers State

A large number of youths have stormed the Pleasure Park in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, to protest against bad governance in the country. Some members of the civil society gathered in the venue on Saturday to join other youths across the state to decry the high level of insecurity and hardship ravaging the country, perceived to have been birthed by bad governance.

Among those present at the protest ground was Mr. Enefaa Georgewill, the Chairman of the Rivers State Civil Society.

Nigeria has been plunged into tension following the protest currently taking place in major cities across the country.

The demonstration in some parts of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja and Lagos State turned violent as security operatives fired teargas at protesters.

This is coming amid tight security in the state capital to ward off protesters.

Recall that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike had warned against such activities in the state.
