The security operatives comprising of military, policemen, Air Force, Navy, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) officers picked up the citizens and thrown into at least six trucks that whisked them away to an unknown destination.

The protesters were believed to have been taken before a mobile court for allegedly breaching the COVID-19 restrictions order.

The citizens had turned up at the unity fountain on Wednesday in commemoration of the first anniversary of the #RevolutionNow protest in which some Nigerians demanded better governance from President Muhammadu Buhari on August 5, 2019.

But while some activists were addressing the crowd, a joint team of security operative swooped on them, forced them to lie on the ground and whisked them away.
