JUST IN: Charly Boy Almost Lynched In Wuse Market
He was just was literally inches away from being lynched by Pro-Buhari supporters in Wuse Market in Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Nigerian musician and social activist, Charles Oputa popularly known as Charly Boy was on Tuesday saved by police officials who prevented an irate mob from lynching him.
The 66 year old "Area Fada" has taken his #resumeorresign protest to Abuja seeking the attention of federal authorities to give full details on the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The President has been in the United Kingdom receiving medical attention for a strange ailment for about 100 days.
An eyewitness at the scene of the incident says "Charly Boy came to this market with some cameramen doing his protest here.
I was standing in front of my shop when I saw him running for his dear life, being chased by those youth.
"They nearly lynched him, because those youth almost overpowered police security near him.
"Charly Boy caused it, how can he come here to be talking against Buhari.
"Those Hausa boys dealt with him," he said.
Last week, Charly Boy called on the executive to allow Nigerians have access to the President who he advised to return and take charge of the affairs of government or resign while the Acting President takes full charge.
