Some protesters have been arrested after taking to the streets of Lagos to speak against the increased fuel price. 

The protesters who held up placards which expressed how they felt towards the increased fuel price, began their march from the Nigeria Labour Congress House in Yaba, Lagos. They were however rounded off by police men at Ojuelegba.

Among the 18 protesters arrested by the policemen are Galaxy TV’s Daniel Tanimu, Sahara reporters, Premium Times and Punch news correspondents. Some policemen were spotted in the viral video trying to stop them from filming the confrontation. 

They were subsequently taken to the Area C police station before being transferred to Police Headquarters in Ikeja Lagos.
