Security personnel made up of regular and anti-riot police attacked Dada Osasuna, a photojournalist with ''The Sun Newspapers'' during a mass rally organized by members of civil society groups to protest the perceived illegality in the impeachment of the Oyo State Governor, Senator Rasidi Ladoja in Ibadan.
The protest, which was led by the duo of comrades Moshood Erubami of the Campaign for Democracy (CD) and Abiodun Aremu, Convener of the United Action for Democracy (UAD) respectively, was aborted as Erubami was arrested after severe beatings from policemen.
