Armed men disrupt #EndSARS protest in Lagos

End SARS protest

Armed men on Thursday disrupted a protest against police brutality in Alausa, Lagos.

A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

The men carried cutlasses and other weapons as they chased the #EndSARS protesters away.

It was gathered that one of the protesters was injured.

The incident comes barely 24 hours after #EndSARS protesters in Abuja were attacked by hoodlums.

The #EndSARS protests have persisted despite the government yielding to the protesters’ demand to scrap the deadly Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The protesters say they also want the proposed replacement for SARS – Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team – scrapped.
