The members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the protest ground alleged that they were attacked by the Nigerian Police Force.
The protest which was staged by members of the PDP including the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara, was carried out to demand that the Osun rerun election be canceled.
The protesters alleged that they were being teargassed by members of the Nigerian Police Force.
