According to Punch News, 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. They informed journalists 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 protesters and arrested seven of them.

By this time last year, security agencies across the country moved against supporters of RevolutionNow, a group led by Omoyele Sowore.

From Lagos to Calabar (Cross River state), Osogbo (Osun state), Akure (Ondo state) and Ibadan (Oyo state), it was a series of arrests of protesters.

One of the activists arrested during the demonstration in Osun State, Olawale Adebayo spent almost 20days in police custody before he was set free.
