Today kickstarts the #RevolutionNow nationwide protest and despite the arrest of the convener, Omoyele Sowore on Saturday morning, organisers said they would go ahead with the protests.
The protesters were scheduled to gather at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos but security agents have surrounded the Stadium in anticipation of the #RevolutionNow protest march.
According to reports, the security agents have the OP MESA vans parked around the stadium. The Operation MESA or OP MESA, as it is commonly referred to, is a joint Internal Security Operational platform made up of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force.
