#Revolutionnow Protest: DSS rearrest Bakare, three others

A leader of the Revolution Now in Osun State, Olawale Bakare and others have been arrested by operatives of the Department of Secret Service (DSS) during a peaceful protest in Osogbo.

Bakare and other members of the movement numbering about six were arrested on Wednesday morning while they were addressing journalists at a popular junction, Ola-Iya.

It could be recalled that on August 4, 2019, Olawale Bakare was arrested in Osogbo together with a human rights activist, pro-democracy campaigner,  Omoyele Sowore after staging a protest in Lagos, Abuja, Osun and other parts of the country.

The protesters who were armed with placards with several inscriptions against bad governance, lack of infrastructure, extrajudicial activities and others were arrested in the presence of policemen.
