The Operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS has arrested the Convener of #RevolutionNow in Osun State, Olawale Bakare in Osogbo.
This happens after one year, as you may recall that on August 4, 2019, a pro-democracy campaigner, an activist, and former presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore staged a protest in Lagos, Abuja, Osun and other parts of the country which led to his arrest and detention.
Similarly, Bakare was also arrested in Osogbo and arraigned alongside Sowore.
Members of #RevolutionNow, coordinated by Olawale converged at the popular Olaiya junction on Wednesday in Osogbo to stage a protest against bad governance, lack of infrastructure, extra-judicial killings in the country, among others.
The protesters had addressed the police officers at the scene on their mission.
As a yet-to-be-identified member of the #RevolutionNow was addressing security agents and onlookers, he was abruptly arrested by DSS. Bakare and two others were also arrested, while others fled the scene.
