Some of the injured victims were said to have been rushed to a government hospital in Osogbo for medical treatment.
The governor of the State, Adegboyega Oyetola, had identified himself with the protesters who were demanding an end to police brutality in the country
The governor apologized for not being able to address the protesters since the demonstration started in Osun.
