More pictures have surfaced online following the arrest of #RevolutionNow protesters by security operatives in Abuja.
Recall that WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that security forces including the police and the Nigerian Army have arrested several #RevolutionNow protesters in Abuja, Lagos and Osun on Wednesday.
It was reported that the arrested protesters had set out as early as 8 am with banners and placards to demand good governance from the Buhari-led administration.
Some of their placards read, ‘Nigerians are sick and tired of poverty, corruption, injustice and untimely death’; ‘Say no to injustice’, ‘Yes to living wage for unemployed youths’.
Sharing the pictures of the arrested protesters online, Sowore wrote;
