#RevolutionNow: Police Manhandles Protesters in Lagos

The men of the Nigeria Police Force forcefully arrest protesters of the #RevolutionNow campaign in Lagos today. The police was seen ruthlessly dragging people who were said to be protesters on the floor, before pushing them into the black maria which include a young man who claimed to be a journalist but without a valid means of identification.

Going by the security situation of the country, the Presidency has clearly made its stand known about the planned protest to seek for revolution, following the arrest of the convener, Omoyele Sowore, by the State Security Service (SSS).

The Presidency said his action amounts to treasonable felony.

Also, protesters arrived in a luxurious bus for the planned protest in Abuja despite the heavy rain but could not go on with the agitation because of the heavily armed policemen that are already on ground who approached their bus fiercely immediately the bus stopped; the bus took off and left the scene in order to avoid any brawl with the law enforcement officers.

However, there was no protest in all other South-Western states including Kwara as the police were waiting to quench any demonstration.

Yet, others were at the National Human Rights secretariat in the FCT to demand for the unconditional release of Omoyele Sowore by the DSS.
