The United States Mission in Nigeria has warned its citizens in Nigeria to exercise caution during the June 12 protests.

This was contained in a demonstration alert posted on the Embassy’s website on Friday.

It was titled, “Demonstration Alert: U.S. Mission Nigeria (June 11, 2021) – Nationwide Protests on Democracy Day.”

It read, “Several groups have announced their intentions to protest nationwide on June 12, Democracy Day. 

“Police presence and response can be expected nationwide, including in Abuja where government events are scheduled to celebrate the national holiday and in Lagos where simultaneous protests are planned.  

“The likely locations for the protests in Abuja will be at Unity Fountain (Hilton Hotel area), Wuse, Berger Roundabout, Aguiyi Ironsi Way, Airport Road, and British Circle. In Lagos, the likely locations for protests will be Lekki Toll Gate and Gani Fawehinmi Park. Calls for the protests suggest they may begin as early as 07:00 a.m.
