Over hundred of FCT residents attended an #EndSARS protest in the country’s capital on Monday, following widespread rumours that a second wave of the anti-police brutality demonstration was in the works.
In videos being shared by the protesters on Twitter, a mammoth crowd was spotted shocking many social media users. This is because just a month ago the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu had said that any form of new #EndSARS won’t be allowed again.
Meanwhile the protest has since spread to some parts of Lagos and Osun state, as seen in videos shared online. However, there have been multiple reports of police and soldiers allegedly taking over Lekki toll gate, ahead of a fresh protests.
It is alleged that the security operatives were deployed around midnight after military and police authorities warned that they will not allow another round of protests to take place.
Lagos state police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi had in a statement released on Sunday December 6, stated that some unpatriotic individuals and groups were planning to embark on the replica of the recent destructive and violent EndSARS protest on Monday. He described it as “illegal” and further averred that they will be stopping the protest.
