Police, Army Arrest #RevolutionNow Protesters In Abuja



The Nigeria Police and the Nigerian Army on Wednesday arrested several #RevolutionNow protesters in the Abuja metropolis.

The protesters, many of whom wore orange berets, were seen carrying placards and banners as they demanded for good governance.

Some of the banners read, ‘Nigerians are sick and tired of poverty, corruption, injustice and untimely death’; ‘Say no to injustice’, ‘Yes to living wage for unemployed youths’.

The protesters who converged on the Unity Fountain, Shehu Shagari Way, Maitama, were about to begin their procession when policemen stormed the venue and dispersed them.

Soldiers and other security operatives also cordoned off adjoining streets including Aguiyi Ironsi Street to prevent the protesters from marching.

Meanwhile, Naija News reports that the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Osogbo have rearrested Olawale Bakare.

Recall that in August 4, 2019, a human rights activist, pro-democracy campaigner, former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore staged a protest in Lagos, Abuja, Osun and other parts of the country which led to his arrest and detention.
