According to an eye witness;
“They are at the state police headquarters now and the police want to charge them for murder.
A Toyota 2005 Camrybig, and a Lexus car were part of the cars
the policemen took away the protesters abandoned.
“Earlier in a tweet, the governor of Ogun State termed the peaceful protest as violent and assured that he won’t tolerate peaceful agitations.
“Shortly after that, a blog loyal to the Ogun State Government said the peaceful protesters ambushed the deputy governor.
However, it was all fabricated lies to deny the protesters their rights.”
