President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday got a major boost to his anti-corruption stance as hundreds of members of civil society groups staged a peaceful protest in solidarity with crusade.

They challenged the president to jail those who looted public funds and recover all ill-gotten wealth.

The protesters stormed the Lagos State Governor's Office on Thursday, carrying placards and banners in support of Buhari's move to purge the nation of corruption and prosecute those who have stolen the nation's money.

The protesters include the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) and Democratic Socialist Movement (DSM).

They urged Buhari not to bow to pressure from anywhere to drop his anti-corruption stance as the civil society groups would back him all the way.

The participating labour groups called on the President to declare total war on corruption irrespective of party affiliation, jail all the looters and seize all ill-gotten wealth.
