A photojournalist said he was brutally attacked by Ekiti End SARS protesters yesterday, October 16.
Olawale Adekola said he was covering the protest when the protesters turned on him. He was beaten until he started bleeding from a hole in the center of his head. His equipment was also stolen.
His scalp had to be stitched after the attack.
Sharing photos of his head injury, he wrote: “I’m so lost of words and sad on how the Ekiti state youths attacked me yesterday because I was with a camera documenting the protests. I was almost stoned to death! Photojournalists aren’t safe anymore. The drone was destroyed, the camera was stolen and other gadgets missing.”
