Villagers block Osinbajo’s convoy in Abuja

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo did not have a smooth ride Osinbajo along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Expressway, in Abuja, on Tuesday morning, as his convoy was blocked by some aggrieved residents of the area.

The vice president was heading to the airport when his convoy ran into a barricade at the Goza village axis of the road.

Residents of Gbagyi village had converged on the spot, which is the major road connecting the airport to the city, to protest the alleged invasion of their land by the military.

The security aides of the vice-president tried to appease the protesters but failed, forcing Osinbajo to alight from his car.

Some of the protesters hailed the vice-president as he approached them.

Osinbajo sued for calm, assuring the protesters that their grievances would be addressed.

Apparently convinced by his intervention, the people allowed his convoy to pass but denied access to other vehicles.
