Police Tear Gas Journalists, Protesting Judicial Workers in Osun
By Bliss Okperan
Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have fired tear gas at journalists and some protesting members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) in Osun State.
The judicial workers were at the entrance of the Osun State High Court in Osogbo when the security operatives fired teargas to disperse them.
According to reports, some members of the media present at the high court were entangled in the crossfire as the police insisted on clearing the way to allow the Chief Judge of the state access to her office on Wednesday.
It was gathered that newsmen covering the demonstration had to run to safety in the melee.
