Some anti-fuel and electricity tariff hike protesters in Lagos State have reportedly arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force

The protesters who took to the street to express their displeasure over the recent increase in petroleum price and electricity cost were arrested around the Ojuelegba area of Lagos on Thursday, September.

According to the source apart from the protesters, gadgets of journalists were also seized during the arrest which happened a few moments ago.

One of the leaders of the protesters, Hasan Soweto, who said to be the National Youth Leader of SPN reportedly said 18 persons were arrested, including four journalists.

He said, “We have just been arrested alongside several other members of the Socialist Party of Nigeria and journalists for protesting this morning against fuel price hike, electricity tariff, and deregistration of SPN. I am typing this message at the back of a police van taking us to Area C, Police Command, Lagos.”

However, efforts to confirm the report from the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, at the moment proved abortive as his lines were said to be unreachable.
