The group got permission from the British Police carried on with the ‘ResumeOrResign campaign created by Nigerian singer Charly boy. The vigil was covered by a Facebook group called ‘Hope For Nigeria’.
While protesting, the over 100 Nigerians saw The 1st lady Aisha Buhari drive in and out of the premises. They also witnessed her with some stewards parking bags in cars including vans and living to either the airport or to a different destination.
