The second day of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest has faced obstacles as expected following resistance from officers of the Police Service yesterday.
The demonstrators, primarily composed of aggrieved youth, gathered at the 37 Lorry Station earlier this morning with renewed determination to march towards the Jubilee House.
This determination persists despite the arrest of nearly fifty protestors on September 21.
As they commenced their march, they encountered a contingent of police officers dressed in full riot gear in front of the 37 Military Hospital. The officers have formed a chain formation, with additional armored vehicles positioned behind them. Barricades have been erected to prevent the group from proceeding further.
Meanwhile, the protestors, adorned in red and black attire, have resorted to singing the national anthem while condemning the government for what they perceive as injustice and corruption. Some also took the opportunity to share their personal motivations for participating in the demonstration.
The objectives of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest encompass a range of reforms, including a reduction in the cost of living, an end to corruption, and enhanced governance.
Numerous celebrities have also joined their voices to the movement, with notable figures such as EL, Efia Odo, and Kelvynboy present at the scene.
