Many injured, cars destroyed as hoodlums attack #EndSARS protesters in Abuja, Lagos

Pro-SARS thugs have attacked #EndSARS protesters in Abuja on Wednesday morning,

The thugs, who were armed with cutlasses, invaded the protest venue at Berger junction about an hour after the #EndSARS protesters had convened.

They harassed the protesters, including passers-by, destroying vehicles parked in the area.

At least five cars were destroyed at the scene, while an unconfirmed number of the protesters sustained injuries.

Hoodlums on Wednesday attacked and robbed protesters on a peaceful protest at the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Also,  hoodlums launched the attack around 3 p.m. leaving several of the protesters running scampering for safety.

Our reporter, who was present during the attack, saw two of the attackers arrive with brand new machetes and axes to rob protesters of their phones.

One of the phones was later recovered.

The incident, however, turned violent after the hoodlums, who were now in their numbers, began brandishing their machetes and were ready to attack.

Some of the protesters sustained minor injuries and their phones stolen during the attack.

The crowd of protesters, however, regrouped and chased after the hoodlums, apprehended three and handed them over to the police division at the Alausa Secretariat.

Some of the protesters accused the government of sponsoring the hoodlums.
