#RevolutionNow: Police Arrest SaharaReporters Journalists

The police have arrested Victor Ogungbenro and Tosin Olajuwon, journalists with SaharaReporters, while the Lagos office of the organisation is reportedly being monitored by security agents.
While Ogungbenro, a video editor, was arrested alongside some #RevolutionNow protesters in Lagos, Olajuwon was picked up at Ore in Ondo state.
Olajuwon, one of the reporters of the organisation in Ondo, was leading a team of protesters when the police swooped on them.
In Lagos, the protesters had gathered at the National Stadium in Lagos, chanting #RevolutionNow and demanding the release of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the group who was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) on Saturday.
After they had been dispersed with teargas and gunshots, Ogungbero who was filming the protest was picked and thrown into a stationed van.
Earlier, Fatai had also said they have an order from the inspector-general of police (IGP) to disperse the “unlawful gathering”.
