#EndSARS protest WhatsApp group administrators reportedly detained by Police

Days after the #EndSARS protest in the country, the police in Osun state have arrested two people said to be administrators of a WhatsApp group which was used for mobilisation of protesters in the state.

A report by Premium Times stated that both administrators named Babawale Popoola and Fisayo Aderemi who were detained since Thursday November 5, were accused of being aware of the looting that occurred a few weeks ago as they were asked to provide members of the #EndSARS WhatsApp groups.

The publication reported that Osun police spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola did not deny the arrest of WhatsApp group admins but instead allege that they played roles in the arson that followed the protests in the state.

Asked why they were yet to be arraigned, Opalola simply said “they are still being investigated. After the investigation, we will know what to do.”
