End SARS Protest
End SARS: 2nd wave of End SARS protest begins in Lagos, Ibadan

The second wave of End SARS protest has started in Lagos and Ibadan. Ibadan the Oyo State’s capital.

Demonstrators have returned to Lekki toll plaza, a military shooting scene currently under investigation.

To forestall a breakdown in law and order, teams of policemen and soldiers are around.

At other flash points in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, security remained heightened.

On Sunday, the police reiterated its ban on gatherings, warning that such might be hijacked by unscrupulous elements.

The End SARS protest initially commenced on October 8 in Lagos. The youth-led outcry spread to other states.

For nearly two weeks, agitators demanded for an end to police brutality. Their resilience forced the police to scrap the notorious unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

But the protest went awry from October 21, one day after the Lekki shooting. Hoodlums, in many states, targeted attack on residences and businesses.

Several public and private property were looted or set on fire.

According to the federal government, the civil disorder, which lasted about a week, caused the death of 100 civilians and security operatives.
