National anthem fills the air as police blocks #OccupyJulorbiHouse protestors again

Today’s edition of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration is facing another hurdle. The aggrieved protestors made up mostly of youth, converged at the 37 Lorry Station earlier this morning in a renewed effort to march to the Jubilee House. This is despite the fact that nearly fifty of them were arrested yesterday, September 21.

As soon as the march began, they were met by police in full riot gear in front of the 37 Military Hospital. The officers have adopted a chain position with more armoured vehicles stationed behind. Barricades have been set up to prevent the group from going beyond that point.

Meanwhile, the protestors, clad in red and black attire, have taken to singing the national anthem while calling out the government for what they describe as injustice and corruption. Others also took turns to share with the group their personal reasons for joining the demonstration.

The #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration aims to demand a range of reforms, including a reduction in the cost of living, an end to corruption, and improved governance. Many celebrities have also been spotted lending their voices to the movement. On the scene were notable personalities such as EL, Efia Odo, and Kelvynboy, among others.
