This is coming off the heels of yesterday’s attack which left many protesters sustaining minor injuries and loss of properties during the coordinated attack.
The crowd of protesters on Wednesday, however, regrouped and chased after the hoodlums, apprehended three and handed them over to the police division at the Alausa Secretariat.
Some of the protesters have also accused the government of sponsoring the hoodlums. A similar attack had happened at the Abuja protest where several cars were destroyed, and phones damaged and stolen.
