EndSARS protesters keep vigil

Popular internet comedian, Debo Adebayo, known as Mr Macaroni was among the visibly angry #EndSARS protesters who kept vigil on Thursday night at the entrance of the Lagos House of Assembly, Ikeja.

The protesters built tents at the entrance, which police operatives dismantled and carted away.

The visibly angry protester refused to back down despite threats to disperse them after policemen destroyed the tent where they have camped for two nights.

Around 10pm, the street lights, which provided illumination for the protesters, were switched off, creating fear of possible threats or attacks.

A twitter user, @SavvyRinu said: “We are in danger, World! Let it be known that we are currently being harassed by the @PoliceNG. They want to kîll us! We will not ask for help from anyone! So nobody should do anything. I can’t tweet anymore”

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa and his entourage later arrived the scene to appeal to the protesters.

He promised that there would be an emergency meeting Friday morning with the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other concerned authorities.

Earlier in the day, Folarin “Falz” Falana and Douglas “Runtown” Agu led a protest to call for scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit in Lagos.
