UPDATE: Police officers on Monday, 5 August, beat and forcefully arrested a journalist and some other protesters in front of the National Stadium, Surulere

Police officers on Monday, 5 August, beat and forcefully arrested a journalist and some other protesters in front of the National Stadium, Surulere, during the #RevolutionNowprotest.

Our team on ground at the venue of the incident report that most of the people arrested resisted the arrest because they said they had not committed any crime.

But they were subsequently harassed, tear gassed and forced into the waiting police van which was taken to an unknown destination afterwards.

Below are some other pictures from the protest in Lagos:
