A photojournalist working with Punch, Olukayode Jaiyeola, has been reportedly brutalised by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force.

According to Punch, Jaiyeola was attacked by heavily armed policemen while covering an October 1 protest in Lagos State.

The protesters, numbering over 200, lamented that 60 years after the country gained independence from Britain and over 20 years of uninterrupted democratic rule, Nigeria’s socio-economic development has been mired by bad leadership which has denied the masses from enjoying the gains of a sovereign state.
