As the wave of protest continue to spread, Hundreds of Nigerian youth have blocked the junction leading to Nigeria’s National Assembly to demand an end to the notorious police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The protest started peacefully from Banex junction in the nation’s capital city, Abuja, around 11 a.m. and culminating at the junction leading to the National Assembly just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
The protesters were, however, stopped by members of Nigerian military who violently chased the youth, leaving some of the protesters and the members of the media injured in the process.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, the atmosphere was in disarray as Aisha Yesufu, one of the popular voices against the dreaded SARS, was seen addressing the hostile military personnel, who are blocking the junction and carrying heavy logs of woods, all in a bid to scare the determined protesters.
On Sunday, the Nigerian government announced it had dissolved the notorious police unit. That notwithstanding, protesters have continued their march in major cities across the country.
