Police in Lagos have arrested Journalist and activist, Agba Jalingo, and 18 other protesters.
The police arrested them during a #RevolutionNow protest in the lkeja area of the state.
Jalingo’s driver, Clement Laruba, confirmed the development.
“He left his phone with me and went to protest in lkeja. The police have arrested him. I am his driver.
“He stood with those protesting during the #RevolutionNow protest. I am currently heading to the Area F Police Division in lkeja.
“The protest started around 9am but I stayed where we parked the car while he left for the protest.
“But he later called me with someone’s number to inform me that he has been arrested,” Laruba said during the telephone conversation.
The members of the #RevolutionNow movement stormed lkeja to protest the deplorable state of the country.
During the protest, the participants carried placards and chanted solidarity songs.
They repeatedly turned around the roundabout located under the bridge opposite the computer village in lkeja.
Meanwhile, Agba Jalingo and human rights defenders Omoyele Sowore and Olawale Adebayo Bakare continue to face trumped-up charges of treason.
The government slammed the charges on them because they demanded government accountability.
They face a life sentence if the Courts find them guilty of these charges.
All charges against the journalist and human rights defenders must be immediately and unconditionally dropped, according to Amnesty International.
