A supposed peaceful protest by members of the #RevolutionNow in Osun State capital, Osogbo, on Wednesday, August 5 ended abruptly after men of the Department of State Services, DSS began to arrest protesters.
Naija News reports that some Nigerians under the aegis of the #RevolutionNow movement took to the streets of some major cities in the country on Wednesday to protest against the actions of the Nigerian government.
The protesters, carrying various placards with different inscriptions took to the streets to call the government to action over cases of corruption, insecurity, unemployment, and other issues affecting the populace.
The Wednesday exercise, however, turned sour for the #RevolutionNow protesters as videos showing moments they were arrested and assaulted by the security operatives continued to emerge.
See below some of the videos;
