Ten supporters of the African Action Congress (AAC) have been arrested for embarking on a peaceful protest to demand the release of six party members that were arrested for pasting campaign posters of Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the AAC.

The protesters picketed the entrance of the Area F Police Station in Lagos on Monday.

Few minutes into the protest, the Police fired teargas multiple times at the protesters.

One of the protesters, Okoh-Oboh Omotese Annabelle, was also shot in the leg.
