In order to forestall any breakdown in law and order, police operatives shot teargas as protesters have arrived at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos State, on Saturday, Democracy Day.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that the protesters gathered at the park on Saturday morning despite the heavy presence of security officials.
