The protest, according to the movement’s convener, Publisher of ‘Sahara Reporters’, Omoyele Sowore, was organised to bemoan the poor state of the nation’s security, economy, among many other issues.
However, the protesters were forcefully dispersed by armed policemen before the protest could begin. According to eyewitness reports, some of the protesters and journalists were arrested while many others sustained injuries.
You will recall that Sowore was arrested by DSS operatives on Saturday, August 3, in his home only two days before the protest was set to begin. The human rights activist remains in detention till date.
