The protesters had earlier blocked the Gudu Junction to protest the state of the nation.
Similar protests were held across the country on Saturday.
The Unity Fountain in Abuja, which is a popular venue for protests in the nation’s capital, had been shy of protesters as of 8:15am.

However, at the Millennium Park just opposite the fountain, a few individuals wearing branded T-shirts with the inscription ‘I Stand With Buhari’ had pooled together.
They were reportedly to later embark on a road walk to mark Democracy Day.

According to them the president has failed in addressing the challenges in the country, including that of insecurity.
Among those leading the protest were social activists Omoyele Sowore and Deji Adeyanju.
However, as the protesters continued their protest, heavily armed policemen stormed the scene and began shooting tear gas into the air, dispersing the protest.
