Police officers of the Ikotun Command in Lagos arrested an online editor of Vanguard Newspaper, Aliyu Adekunle, in Lagos on Friday, February 16, 2018.

According to a report by Vanguard, Adekunle was arrested by the law enforcement officers while he was taking pictures of okada (motorcycle) riders in the Ikotun area.

When Pulse contacted the organisation, a senior online correspondent, Anthony Ogbonna, confirmed the story.

"Yes, it's true. (They) said he was taking pictures of okada men," he said.
