Armed thugs have attacked youths protesting under the #EndSARS movement  against police brutality in Lagos.

The thugs stormed attacked the protesters with machete, charms, and sticks at the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

The thugs were however repelled by protesters who overpowered them.

Three of the thugs were caught and handed over to security personnel.

Naija News had earlier reported that thugs had also attacked #EndSARS protesters in Berger, Abuja.

They harassed the protesters, including passers-by, destroying vehicles parked in the area.

But the protesters were able to regroup and mount a counter attack, chasing away the thugs.

Recall that Nigerian youths have taken to the streets for the past one week to protest extrajudicial killings and brutality by the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Following pressure from protesters the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, disbanded SARS and announced the formation of a new unit called Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team.

He also ordered former operatives of the disbanded SARS to submit themselves for psychological and medical examination at the Force HQ.

Unsatisfied with the IGP’s actions so far Nigerian youths vowed to continue with protests in Lagos and Abuja.
