After one year, the Convener of RevolutionNow in Osun State, Olawale Bakare, has been rearrested by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS in Osogbo.

Recall that on August 4, 2019, a human rights activist, pro-democracy campaigner, and former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore staged a protest in Lagos, Abuja, Osun and other parts of the country which led to his arrest and detention.

Similarly, Bakare was also arrested in Osogbo and arraigned alongside Sowore.

Olawale and members of the Revolution Now converged at the popular Olaiya junction in Osogbo on Wednesday to stage a protest against bad governance, lack of infrastructure, extra judicial activities, among others.

The protesters had addressed the police officers at the scene on their mission.

A yet-to-be identified member of the RevolutionNow while addressing security agents and onlookers was abruptly arrested by DSS. Bakare and two others were also arrested, while others fled the scene.
