Six other persons were also arrested.

Bakare, alongside others, converged at the Olaiya junction in Osogbo, Osun capital on Wednesday to express their displeasure against bad governance, lack of infrastructure, extra-judicial activities among others.

Similar protests are ongoing in other 36 states of the country and the Federal Capital Territory.

The #RevolutionNow protest which took place last year led to the arrest of Sowore and Bakare who were detained for several months.

A court had earlier ruled that the disruption of last year’s protest by police is against the right to freedom expression and assembly of the arrested individuals.

International communities have also condemned the government over the incessant attack on protesters.
