The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has said that a journalist with Legit TV, Abisola Alawode, was arrested during the EndSARS memorial protest in the State because he had no means of identification.
Alawode was arrested alongside some protesters in the early hours of Wednesday at the Lekki Tollgate.
The Commissioner while speaking to journalists, said Alawode was immediately released when his colleagues showed up to identify him as member of their crew.
He said, “They said one journalist was arrested, he didn’t have ID card but his colleagues have identified him and I have said they should release him and he is here now. We are just being fair to everyone.”
