Obi said the president had fulfilled the constitutional requirements by transmitting letter to the national assembly and also transferred power to the acting president.

Their protest followed the action of civil society groups led by Charly Boy, Nigerian entertainer.

Charly Boy resumed with protesters yesterday despite having been rushed to a hospital on Tuesday after his collapse following tear gas and water cannon shots fired at him by policemen who were alleged to have been aggressive in their efforts to curb the group's activities.

The protesters today converged at Unity Fountain, the same venue where a rival group of demonstrators under the hashtag, #ResumeorResign, had staged protests three days ago demanding the ailing president's immediate return to Nigeria or his resignation.

Ace musician and activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charlyboy, has countered claims that the constitution is silent on when President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return and resume his duties.

Gujungu accused the northern governors whom he said won election on the back of President Buhari's popularity as not doing enough.

They burst into chants of "four more years".

"More so, in the present case, the president complied with the provisions of the Constitution and all organs of government are not impaired nor hindered by his medical vacation" it stated.

"Since the "Our-Mumu-Don-Do" protesters did not conduct themselves in such a manner as to disturb public peace, it is not right for the police to brutalize the people as they reportedly did".

This right, Ozo-Eson noted, has been affirmed by the courts of the land.

According to him, "the resort to violent dispersal is not only a violation of the rights of the protesters and norms of civilised behaviour but a smirch on the record of Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who during his oath of office had assured Nigerians that the police under his watch would police in line with democratic culture".
