Muslim #EndSARS protesters on Friday in Lagos and Abuja observed their Juma’at prayers on the road before continued to push for their demands to be met, some which includes justice for all victims of police brutality and killings.
In the metropolitan city of Lagos, the sacred prayers were held at Lekki toll gate and House of Assembly Drive in Alausa while others in Abuja also joined in the activity.
At the Juma’at service in Alausa, some Christian protesters watched on while others provided cover for the praying Muslims. During the prayer session, other protest activities were suspended.
This comes 24 hours after the Federal Capital Territory Security Committee directed that all street demonstrations, protests, and processions will not be allowed anywhere in Abuja due to the dangers posed by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic
Punch reports that a protest schedule released on Thursday noted that Christians are also expected to worship at their protest grounds on Sunday. it will reportedly be led by DayStar’s Pastor Sam Adeyemi and streamed live at Lekki toll gate.
