According to a report by The PUNCH, the men of the Lagos State Police Command have clamped down on residents who joined the #RevolutionNow protest in the state.

The PUNCH gathered that no fewer than 20 of the protesters, including Nigerian journalist, Agba Jalingo, were arrested.

One of the protesters, Jamiu Towolawi, said the police also attacked members of the group around the Ikeja Along area, adding that 15 people are missing.

He said, “As at the last count, we have confirmed the arrest of 20 people and 15 are still missing. They shot tear gas at us at Ikeja Underbridge and brutalised our people. Agba Jalingo is among those arrested.”

Towolawi said more than 100 of the protesters had converged on the Ikeja office of the Committee for the Defense of Human Rights for a press briefing.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, did not take his call.

Responding to a text message from our correspondent on the alleged police attack, Elkana promised to get back after getting “briefs across the state.”
