The ongoing #ENDSARS protests in Lagos have turned violent today, Thursday, October 15 after scores of armed hoodlums invaded the protest grounds and attacked protesters at Alausa, Ikeja.
The thugs were conveyed in a BRT bus, it was reported, and they stormed the protest area wielding weapons and attacking unarmed protesters.
According to some reports on social media, the thugs were reportedly sent by Lagos NURTW chairman, MC Oluomo, working in collaboration with Baba Alado of Mushin.
Nigerian activist Aisha Yesufu posted a video showing the moment the thugs arrived in a BRT bus and made their way to the protest area.
The #ENDSARS campaign frontwoman posted on Twitter:
“Heavily armed thugs hired by Baba Alado to attack youths at Alausa protest arrives with long bus. I thought sanwolu assured of a peaceful protest in Lagos?”
Social media is currently buzzing with reactions to the unfortunate development.
