Thugs Attack #EndSARS Protesters, Damage Vehicles In Abuja

Thugs bearing weapons, on Wednesday, attacked some Nigerians protesting against police harassment and brutality in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The thugs, who were armed with cutlass and other weapons, injured an unconfirmed number of persons and damaged vehicles.

However, the protesters regrouped within minutes and started chasing the thugs away.

One of the thugs, who was caught, was severely beaten. He was later taken to the hospital to receive medical attention.

The attack occurred at Berger junction some moments after the commencement of the protest.

The protest is part of a nationwide #EndSARS movement which started as a demand to disband the now-dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.

The unit was notorious for abuse of human rights, brutalisation, and even extra-judicial killings of young Nigerians.

Despite the dissolution of SARS, agitations have persisted with the protesters demanding an end to police brutality, justice for victims of police brutality and release of all arrested protesters.
