An African-American man has been captured on camera confessing that he was paid to join the pro-Buhari protest in New York, United States of America.
Recall that there was a pro-Buhari protest in New York city, as the President will be addressing the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, tomorrow, 24th September, 2021.
The Buhari supporters orgnized the counter protest against the Yoruba Nation agitators – who staged a “Million-Man Freedom March” on the 14th and 15th of September opposite the United Nations Headquarters.
The Yoruba Nation agitators protest was organised by the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS).
However, In a video shared by a US based journalist, Jackson Udeh, the African-American man openly confessed that he is not from Nigeria and he doesn’t even have a clearer picture of what exactly is happening in Nigeria. Adding that he was paid to join the protest.
“This is protesting for Nigeria”, the African-American said when asked why he is holding a placard written “Nigerian Christian not Targets of Genocide or Ethnic Cleansing”. Continuing, he said; “If anybody is black, I’ll protest for them. Let me tell you something, me, I protest for everybody. I don’t care if it’s white, black, I protest to help everybody”, there is a lot of information going round here and a lot of people are twisting it.”

Meanwhile, the video has corroborated a statement released by the Leader of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), Professor Banji Akintoye.
Prof Akintoye in a statement through the group’s Director of Public Communications, Maxwell Adeleye, alleged that the Nigerian Government has hired some black foreigners living in the United States of America to stage a Pro-Buhari protest opposite the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Friday.
The statement read…
“The Friday Grand March in New York shall be historic, hence, the Nigerian government is jittery. The Ring Leader of Government Officials from Kwara State and a top Lagos Journalist are now in New York to start hiring black people who will pretend as Nigerians to stage a Pro-Buhari and One Nigeria Protest to counter NINAS on Friday.
“But we refuse to be rattled. We shall not be intimidated. No Oppressor has ever triumphed against the collective will of the people. The people are the government and power belongs to the people. The people make the constitution. The sovereignty belongs to the people. Our own strength lies in the hands of the people. Therefore, Our march shall be people’s centered. It shall be peaceful as usual.”
