Hmmmm I think this should be done using the means of social media. Every concerned Nigerians to do this at home with a short clip of 1-2min video ranting seriously then bombard the internet. Also tagging this those govt officials.
We shouldn't break the rules but to keep safe.

He Shut down Lagos, Ogun and Abuja and started giving out 20k to 40k paliatives in Katsina, Zamfara and Kano leaving the south to suffer. He @MBuhari doesn't hide his hatred for the south. What pains me more our politicians are watching. Bloody hypocrites. God'll judge you all
