Athletes forced to train outside as soldiers surround National Stadium


Some Nigerian athletes who train in the main bowl of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, have been forced to do their physical exercise outside the stadium as security agents mount guard around the public structure on Monday.

Operation MESA had mounted guard at the national stadium to prevent activists from holding a scheduled #RevolutionNow protest spearheaded by Sahara Reporters publisher and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress in the 2019 General Election, Mr. Omoyele Sowore.

However the obvious cordon-off of the stadium has affected regular activities at the stadium.

Meanwhile, organizers of the protest insist they will continue the planned protest despite the arrest of Sowore
