A foundation, Idera De Movement, on Sunday donated a sum of N50,000 to Mrs. Sariyu Akanmu, a septuagenarian fufu seller beaten by the Police during the Monday, August 5 protest organised by the #RevolutionNow group in Osogbo.

Mrs. Akanmu, an indigene of Agboyele Compound, Osogbo, was hawking fufu on the streets of Osogbo, Osun State capital, when she ran into members of #RevolutionNow who were protesting at Fagbewesa junction and joined them.

After almost two hours of protest, security operatives forcefully dispersed the protesters and arrested seven members of the group.
