The Nigerian economy is really in a down low games as many could not find the situation funny.
The citizens of Nigerian could not be allowed to express their right as police gave them a huge hit while doing so in Lagos state while they were protesting a hike in the pump price of petrol.
During this process, four journalists were arrested including Galaxy’s Daniel Tanimu, Sahara reporters, premium times and Punch news correspondent.
Protesters comprising members of the Socialist Party of Nigeria and other civil societies marching against the increase in the pump price of petrol were arrested by men of the Nigerian police force Area C, Ojuelegba Lagos.
The protesters who were bearing placards of various inscriptions started their match from the Nigeria Labour Congress House Yaba Lagos.
They matched peacefully towards sharing leaflets containing their demands until they were rounded off by policemen at Ojuelegba.
About 18 protesters including four journalists were manhandled and subsequently arrested by the police.
They were taken to the Area C police station before being transferred to Police Headquarters in Ikeja Lagos.
As at the time of filing this report, the journalists and other protesters are still being held and their camera’s seized.
