BREAKING NEWS: DSS, Police, Army Arrest #RevolutionNow Protesters In Different States

Several #RevolutionNow protesters were arrested by the police and the Nigerian Army in the Abuja metropolis on Wednesday.


The protesters carrying placards and banners had set out as early as 8 am to demand good governance.

Some of the banners read, ‘Nigerians are sick and tired of poverty, corruption, injustice and untimely death’; ‘Say no to injustice’, ‘Yes to living wage for unemployed youths’.

The protesters, many of whom wore orange berets, converged on the Unity Fountain, Shehu Shagari Way, Maitama, and were about to begin their procession when policemen stormed the venue and dispersed them.


Soldiers and other security operatives also cordoned off adjoining streets including Aguiyi Ironsi Street to prevent the protesters from marching.

Human rights lawyer, Tope Akinyode, said he witnessed security agents beating protesters for no just cause.

Akinyode said, “They arrested about 29 of our people. Security officials made them to lie down and beat them. Even as a lawyer I was harassed. They pushed me around. This is very undemocratic.”

It was learnt that the protests are ongoing in other states, including Lagos. The protesters in Osogbo were also arrested by members of the Nigeria Police Force.


The leader of the group, Omoyele Sowore, who is a former Presidential candidate, was detained last year for about three months while court orders for his release were ignored.

He was eventually released following pressure from the international community and human rights organisations.  Several protesters who were arraigned in court won their cases.

  2. I don't blame the Govt but the masses that collected money from politicians during electioneering. Somebody paid you to rule you and you are complaining. I said it time without numbers that all of us should stay indoors on election days, you guys said you want to exercise your franchise. See where we are now. The unfortunate thing is that I'm suffering alongside you people that choose to vote.

  4. Every effort to get this government thinking has always flopped due to effect with propaganda and violence perpetrated the agbero of the NURTW especially in Lagos State. APC can never any free and fair election in Nigeria that is why they deploy voulence everywhere during elections including their own primaries. We must take back our country band of industrial cowards.

  5. This is the problem we have in this country, we always call God even in situation we can ordinary ordinarily help ourselves. God can only help u if u help urself. All we do is talk without action, I think its time we stand up and change the way things are going. After that we'll then see if God won't help.
