Hooligans who were mobilized to disrupt Lagos #EndSWAT protest were repressed and apprehended by the protesters, who “taught them a little lesson” before handing them over to the Alausa Police Station.
About an hour ago, about 13 youths armed with brand new machetes, axes, gun and charms swooped on the #EndSARS protest at the Lagos/ibadan expressway inward Lagos State secretariat Alausa. They attacked the protest dispossessing protesters of their phones and causing mayhem. After initially taken aback and running for safety, the protesters reorganized and resisted them.
In the process 3 of them were apprehended and handed over to the police at Alausa secretariat while the protest continue peacefully. Their names are: Damilola Balogun, Suleiman Adekunle and Niyi Faloba.
It is obvious that they were sent by the capitalist state because similar attacks occurred at the protest in Abuja this morning. The state is trying to break this movement. The movement has to begin earnest discussion about how to deal with this new situation opening.
