The protest was marred by violence and wanton destructions after it was hijacked by hoodlums suspected to be bankrolled by politicians.

She didn't commit any offence

According to Omoyele Sowore, an activist and former presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Ogunniyi did not commit any offence before he was apprehended as part of the EndSARS protesters.

Sowore, who is also a media publisher, claimed that the mother of the newborn was going to a pharmaceutical store when she was arrested for being part of the hoodlums who burned the office of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akure, Ondo state capital.

The activist made the claim in a Facebook post on Wednesday, June 16, as he called the attention of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to the plight of the woman.

Sowore said:

"She was arrested in Akure during #Endsars. she didn’t commit any offence. She was only going to the pharmacy for her mother and police arrested her, claiming she looks like #Endsars protesters who burnt the APC office.
