In a show of dissent, supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have taken to the streets in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, following the Supreme Court’s recent decision affirming Governor Abdullahi Sule’s victory in the state’s governorship poll.
The protest, centered around the PDP state secretariat, has resulted in the complete blockade of the Lafia-Jos Road. This has forced motorists to seek alternative routes within the city, causing disruptions to daily life.
Security agencies are actively present to prevent any escalation and maintain public order. While the situation is being closely monitored, the protests have led to the abrupt closure of shops, business centers, and schools in the Lafia metropolis.
The unrest highlights the intensity of emotions surrounding the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Nasarawa governorship election. PDP supporters have resorted to burning tires and creating barricades, expressing their dissatisfaction with the outcome.
Authorities are working diligently to restore calm and ensure the safety of the public. As the security presence remains vigilant, alternative routes within Lafia have become essential for residents and commuters.
