As many Nigerians continue to express displeasure over the outcome of the 2023 presidential election, some aggrieved women on Monday, stormed the front of the United States Embassy in Abuja, half-naked.
Recall that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, was declared the winner of the February 25, election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Niaja News learnt that the angry women, who are members of the Free Nigeria Movement, protested at the US Embassy over the alleged rigging and discrepancies that happened during the 2023 polls.
According to DAILY POST, the protesters, who held placards with various inscriptions, called on the US Government to place a visa ban on the instigators of violence during the just concluded election.

Pro-Tinubu Protest Erupts In Abuja
Meanwhile, supporters of the president-elect of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu stormed the Federal Capital to defend the mandate of the party’s leader after the refusal to congratulate the new Nigerian leader.
According to one of the organizers, Suleiman Raji, the demonstration was to condemn those who have been silent because their action or inaction could put Mr Tinubu’s mandate in jeopardy.
They are refusing to congratulate him and that is why we keep seeing people coming with all manner of attacks on the president-elect,” Mr Raji said on Monday morning. “It is very wrong because he was elected by Nigerians in a free and fair campaign.”
A frontline Christian leader in Nigeria, John Onaiyekan said that the American President, Joe Biden and several other religious and political leaders in Nigeria and beyond who have withheld congratulatory messages to Tinubu fuels doubt on the U.S. leader’s acceptance of the new Nigerian leader.
He said: “We have to defend the mandate freely given to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu because it is the right thing to do,” another protester Sherifat Yusuf said. “We cannot sit down and allow them to rob us of a mandate that was freely given to Asiwaju.”
