BREAKING: Lagos Police Arrest Two #EndSARS Anniversary Protesters In Lagos

 

The pressman’s phone, Newsonline Nigeria reports were taken from him and he was confined to a vehicle belonging to security operatives.

 

The State Government and the police had earlier warned youths who planned to protest at the Lekki tollgate on Wednesday (today) to have a rethink and shelve the protests.

 

But the young Nigerians, under the aegis of #EndSARS memorial vowed to defy the police’s order.

 

The #EndSARS protests had spread across the country in October 2020 to register the youths’ grievances against the alleged atrocities of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.

 

The protest, which gained massive international attention, came to a halt on October 20, 2020, when heavily armed soldiers allegedly shot protesters at the Lekki tollgate.

The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry that probed the alleged killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate had approved the reopening of the tollgate after about four months of investigating the Lekki shootings.

 

The facility had been shut down since the probe of the shootings started.
