Fans of Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Pere, have stormed the streets of Illupeju in Lagos State, to protest against the twist by Biggie to make their favourite and Angel battle as finalists for the show, aso Naija reports.
Different videos circulating online show that the protesters branded shirts and placards that read, “#Justice for Pere’ amongst other messages, stormed the Multichoice office on Monday morning.
This happened after Pere and Angel who had faced fake eviction during the Sunday live show were pitted against each other for them to continue as finalists on the show.
The duo was isolated in a ‘white room’ in the BBNaija house and had to battle their way back into the show through ‘trucks and screwdrivers’, according to Biggie.
However, the voting poll shows that Pere had 25.31% of votes while Angel had 14.63%, a fact unknown to the duo.
Reacting to the difference in the votes, the fans protested, stating that it was unfair for the organisers of the show to make Pere go through the twist when he’s obviously ahead of Angel in the polls.
As the fans protest the ‘injustice’ by BBNaija organisers, the circulating videos show that the environment was heavily guarded by security men.
In a video by BBC Pidgin, ‘One of the protesters said, “If you don’t want him, release him to us. Why the mental stress?”
Soon after the small crowd began to chant ‘Justice for Pere’, as they hold us their placards in protest.
