Sariyu, who sells fufu, joined the protest after security operatives restricted the protesters from leaving Fagbewesa Junction, where they had assembled.

Security operatives had told the protesters to disperse, but the youth numbering about 30 decked in orange beret and handkerchiefs stood their ground and sang protest songs.

Security men later descended on the protesters and beat them before using tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Sariyu was later manhandled and openly brutalised by a policewoman and another armed policeman.

Ten members of the ‘RevolutionNow’ group were later arrested and taken away by the security men.
