Many injured, Vehicles damaged as thugs attack Abuja #EndSARS protesters
An unconfirmed number of persons were injured and vehicles damaged when suspected thugs attacked Nigerians protesting against police brutality and extortion in Abuja on Wednesday.
Thugs attacked the protesters at Berger junction a few minutes after the commencement of the protest.
It was learnt that the thugs were armed with cutlass and other weapons.
Meanwhile, despite nationwide agitation against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, supporters of SARS under the aegis of Coalition of Civil Society Organisations on Tuesday took to the streets to support efforts of the police in ridding the country of crimes.
The organisation warned that the continuous protests against the SARS operatives were aimed at bringing down the government.
The Chief Convener of COCSO, Olayemi Success, and Co-Convener, Kabiru Dallah, told journalists that the Anti-SARS protesters were being sponsored by Yahoo Boys.
The group said, “This solidarity march is very important to boost the morale of the policemen and women, for them to know that well-meaning Nigerians appreciate their sacrifices in securing Nigeria, we are convinced that Police is our friend and everyone that sees police as enemies are suspects.”
