While Nigerian youths continue to press for their demands to be met, the protest took another twist as the Muslim youths observed their Jummat prayers on the road.
After Lekki toll gate protesters were artackrd last night by thugs, the EndSARS movement seems to be gaining more momentum, as protesters still gathered today at the protest ground.
Muslim protesters in Lagos, were seen observing their Jummat prayers at the protest ground near the House of Assembly Drive, Alausa and Toll gate.This came days after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, set up a new unit called the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS).
However, the protesters said they don’t want another unit to be formed by the government, because they believe the new unit is only a mere change of name.
As the protest continued on Friday with many rejecting the SWAT unit, the police have said no member of SARS will be in the unit and referred to the unit as Tactical Unit rather than SWAT.
