September 27, (THEWILL) – Fans of Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Pere, on Monday stormed the streets of Ilupeju in Lagos State, to protest against the twist by Big Brother to make Pere and Angel slug it out as finalists for the reality show.
Many videos circulating online indicate that the protesters branded shirts and placards that read, “#Justice for Pere’ amongst other messages, arrived at the Multichoice office on Monday morning.
This development happened after Pere and Angel who had faced fake eviction during the Sunday live show were placed together in a ‘white room’ in the BBNaija house as they battled to fight their way back into the show.
However, the voting poll indicated that Pere had 25.31% of votes while Angel had 14.63%. This however, is not known by either Pere or Angel.
Reacting to this development, the fans protested, stating that it was unfair for the organisers of the show to make Pere pass through the twist since he’s obviously ahead of Angel in the polls.
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 started to chant ‘Justice for Pere’, as they held up their placards in protest.
