This picture shows the level of brutality that has become normal in the society.


Police brutalise woman, journalist, arrest 10 in Osun

In Osogbo, Osun State, an elderly woman identified as Sariyu Akanmu, was brutalised by policemen while 10 members of the #RevolutionNow were arrested.

The police had asked the protesters to disperse but the youth, numbering about 30, decked in orange beret and handkerchiefs, stood their ground and sang protest songs for about two hours.

The security men later seized their public address system and ordered them to fold their banners.

This led to a clash between the police and the protesters.

The police descended on the protesters, beat them up, before firing tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd.

In the ensuing melee, Sariyu, who is about 70 years old and sells fufu, was brutalised by a policewoman, while another policeman hit her with his footwear.

Journalists and many bystanders were also not spared, as a police woman released tear gas canister into the face of Sunday Oguntuyi, the correspondent of Nigeria News Direct newspaper.

Some members of the #RevolutionNow group were also brutalised by the DSS operatives, while about 10 members of the group were arrested.

Addressing newsmen earlier, Olawale Adebayo, who led the protest, demanded unconditional release of Sowore.

You guys are disgusting with your wicked and vengeful hearts. You only live to celebrate what you believe to be negative development for Nigeria/Yoruba/Fulani. It is only you nitwit deeming this a fight between Yoruba and Fulani. Last I checked, the number two and number four Nigerians are Yorubas so your mor.onic reasoning is dead on arrival

Even assuming all protestors were Yoruba, which can never be the case in Lagos, would it not make sense they are just protesting against the Government, which consist of powerful Yorubas, and not "Fulani". You guys are petty and parochial and this is the reason you are fifth class today and zero in Nigerian politics.

Trash trash trash

Fifth class and Zero in Nigerian politics , but not as poor and unfortunate as the North that has hold on to power for years .

Which Yoruba state is doing well economically apart from Lagos that's obviously a "No man's land"?

Blah blah blah as usual from the normal chest beaters. There is also extreme poverty in the east so you guys can only deceive yourselves with the 'no poverty in the east' mantra that you kept telling yourselves. I don't even understand you guys obsession with the north. If you are doing so well in your east then why are you folks trooping into the north in droves like some refugees, day in and day out? The last time the north gave you a quit notice, you folks travelled all over the nation with tears in your eyes, pleading for mercy.

Go to Douglas road, Owerri, there you will see your northern brothers and sisters in their hundreds begging day and night like it's their birth right .

Why must aboki people still beg after holding on to power since 1960 till date ?

My friend shut up. What's the difference between those northern beggars and the social media beggars that are mostly from your region, huh?

This is why Nigeria will remain the way it is!

Yoruba will fight alone
Igbo will fight alone.
The bad leadership remains stronger because a tree can not make a forest! United we stand; divided we fall!! What happened to the enemy of my enemy is my enemy? If we don't unite to sanitize Nigeria, I assure you Biafra too may remain a mirage. We must team up if we want to achieve the same thing!

I'm sorry but when did igbos leave the north for the east? It has never happened. And if you have any proof to backup your claims, please state it here. Even during the Biafra war, most igbos residing in the north didn't go back to the east even when the war monger(ojukwu) was telling them to come back

u see how ur making a fool of ur self.. So all the people that beg online is mostly igbo??
how did u arrive at that conclusion??

since u know that igbos are not known to beg in real life, u have to bring another propaganda by saying that they always beg online. ur hate for ndigbo is making u to sound unreasonable and will surely make u mad.

by the way, ur little sense didnt tell u that since its online, people always Hide their true identity.
a case study is nl.
Hey I don't hate igbos!!! That been said, there are also Igbo beggars, though your own form of begging is advanced. You do yours on social media, you beg every jack and Jill on Instagram, twitter,
etc for stipends to either buy clothes, money to eat food or to pay medical bills. And yes most of the social media beggars are from your region.

why don't u read it up.. Google is ya friend.. Let me give u a tip: Before the civil war,about 300 igbo officers were killed in one day by the revenge coupist of july 29.. This denigrated into a riot where all igbos in the north were haunted and killed..

then all igbos in the north ran to east to form biafra.. That was wen ojukwu declared biafra...

but wat happened next ur leaders said no and fought to bring them back to nigeria.. Even killing millions..

so u see... D reason while igbos are still nigerians is because they were forced.. And since u guys like igbos so much that u killed them to stay with u, stop crying about the effects of ur decision when igbos come enmass to the north

there is no denying the fact that igbos beg online.. My bone of convention is ur claim that they are in the majority..

but remember wat led to this discussion was were a nl member replied that even tho the northern region have been the ones who led the country the most, whereas their people is still the most poverty stricken of all.. don't deviate

I can see that you are a very poor student of history. So in your deluded accession, all igbos were massacred in the north and the same 'massacred igbos' were the same ones that ran back to the east. I don't understand?? You don't even know what you are saying.


Anyway bye,
