Today Monday, December 7, 2020, Nigerians have commenced another second wave of #End SARS protests in Lagos and Ibadan. Ibadan is the capital of Oyo State.
The EndSARS demonstrators have returned to Lekki toll plaza, the military shooting scene, which is currently under probe.
Teams of Nigerian soldiers and Policemen are around to forestall a breakdown of law and order.
Security agencies have been heightened at other flashpoints in Lagos state, Nigeria’s biggest city.
However, On Sunday, the police officers reiterated its ban on any form of gatherings, warning that unscrupulous elements might hijack such acts.
The #End SARS protests initially commenced on October 8 in Lagos. The Nigerian youth-led outcry spread to other states.
For nearly two weeks, agitators demanded for an end to police harassment and 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 attacks on residences and businesses.
Several private and public property was looted and set on fire.
According to the Nigerian government, the civil disorder, which lasted about a week, caused the death of 100 civilians and security operatives.
