The supporters, known as the “Obidient movement,” had assembled at the Pastoral Centre in Abakaliki for the march when police invaded the scene and used tear gas to scatter them.

On Saturday morning, the incident generated heavy traffic on the well-traveled Old Enugu route in the capital city.

Steve Ugama, one of the supporters, claimed that the police had detained roughly five of his colleagues in addition to scattering and using tear gas on the crowd.

He said: “This is inhuman and undemocratic. We have gathered here this morning for our peaceful March, all of a sudden, the police came and started tear-gassing us and arresting our people.

“They said we can’t hold the march, because Governor David Umahi asked them to stop us, that we can’t hold it. About four or our colleague have been arrested. We need help here.”

The supporters, however, later got together in a different area of the city and carried on with the march.

They were spotted at the time of this report on the Enugu-Abakaliki highway.
