Senator Ben Murray Bruce, announced earlier that he was teargassed at the Peoples Democratic party(PDP) members protest at the National Secretariat of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) against the outcome of the 2018, Osun state gubernatorial election on Friday.
The senator via his Twitter handle has released a video of the ‘peaceful’ protest now turned riot. In a video, some police officers are seen barricading the protesters from exceeding the boundary.
Senator Dino Melaye is seen in the forefront, alongside Ben Bruce being held from breaking police barricae while chants of ‘We no gree’ and ‘Dino Dino, Dino’ by the PDP protesting members rent the air.

This is the video as best as we could get in the circumstances. We have a democratic right to peaceful protest and freedom of association. This act is unconscionable in a democracy. pic.twitter.com/wxmY9wWvFE
