For Third Time, Armed Thugs Attack #EndSars Protesters In Lagos

Thugs have again attacked peaceful #ENDSARS protesters in front of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Alausa, Ikeja, less than 100 metres from the Governor’s office.

Protesters have come under attack three times in the last three days.

The protesters were holding a candlelight session for victims of extrajudicial killings by SARS officials when they were attacked.

Some of the protesters sustained injuries while scampering for safety.

The thugs were, however, repelled by the protesters and normalcy was restored to the area.

The protesters have accused the government of mobilising thugs to disrupt the ongoing peaceful protest.

On Thursday, the thugs were conveyed in buses owned and operated by the Lagos State Government to venue of the demonstration.

On Wednesday, Protesters apprehended three of the Cutlass-wielding thugs and handed them over to the Police.

Protesters, mainly young people in their thousands across the country and in diaspora have been demonstrating on the streets in the last eight days and are demanding the scrapping of a Police tactical unit- Special Anti-Robbery Squad- SARS which many say has gone rogue following records of brutality, killings and human right abuse on the Nigerian youths.
