#EndSARS: Abuja authorities announce ban on protests


As protest continue unabated across the country, the Abuja administration, in a bid to halt the spread of the protest, has announced a ban on street protests.

The ban is meant to stop the #EndSARS protesters who have been marching since last week demanding a ban on a notorious police unit, SARS, and comprehensive police reforms.

The ban on protests was announced by the spokesperson of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Anthony Ogunleye, in a statement.

Mr Ogunleye said the FCT security committee met on Tuesday and noted the ‘unruly conduct’ of protesters.

It accused protesters of violating COVID-19 protocols, saying “due to the dangers posed by COVID-19, all street demonstrations, protests and processions will not be allowed anywhere within the FCT.

It would be recalled that only yesterday, some hoodlums attacked peaceful protesters leading to destruction of cars and leaving a some person injured.

Aside that, the #EndSARS protests have been largely peaceful in Abuja
