Revolution Now protest has been disrupted after a number of peaceful protesters were arrested by DSS and armed military personnel in Abuja, Lagos and Osogbo
The Department of State Services, on Wednesday, arrested Olawale Bakare and six other #RevolutionNow protesters wearing orange-coloured caps around Olaiya area of Osogbo, Osun State capital.
The protesters led by Bakare aka Mandate armed with placards had converged on Correspondents’ chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists located in the area and informed newsmen that they wanted to address them.
While waiting outside for the leadership of the chapel to invite them in, some policemen had approached them and were discussing with the protesters.
While that was on, armed men of Department of State Services swooped on the Revolution Now protesters and arrested seven of them.
