He also tendered apology to them after a brief meeting with some of his men.

Inside the van are #EndSARSMemorial protesters who had been picked and locked up on Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

He asks them to identify themselves, one after the other.

Those who are able to identify themselves are let out, while those who aren't able to identify themselves remain locked up in this van, in the sweltering temperatures.

"We will investigate those still locked up in the van. We are taking them to the police station. Once we ascertain that they are harmless, we let them go,"

Odumosu says from behind a face shield, as dozens of other police officers mill around him.

Odumosu apologised to journalists and anyone who was brutalised, harassed and wrongfully arrested during today's protests.

"That was done by Judases among us. By ignorant officers. This uniform I'm wearing, you paid for it," the police boss lectures.

Earlier, an Uber driver, was bloodied, pepper-sprayed and dragged on the road, as police made to forcibly throw him into the van.

Today's convoy memorial marked the one year anniversary of the viral police brutality protests of October 2020.
