Some youths have been spotted cleaning up their community after looters left the streets dirty yesterday.
What started as a peaceful #EndSARS protest across the nation was hijacked by hoodlums and led to massive looting.
In Enugu state for instance, many private properties were looted by hoodlums.
As tension calms, Enugu youths could be seen cleaning up the ruins on the street, as they look to restore nomalcy.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari spoke to the nation about the unrest that has gripped the country in recent days, but without making any mention of the shootings of peaceful protesters at Lekki toll plaza on Tuesday night that prompted international outrage.
The military opened fire without warning on thousands of peaceful protesters singing the national anthem Tuesday night, killing at least 12 people, according to Amnesty International.
The shootings have been widely condemned but Buhari did not speak of them at all during his Thursday address, instead urging protestors to stop their demonstrations.
“This government will not allow anybody or (any) groups to disrupt the peace of the nation,” he warned in his televised address, urging protesters to “resist the temptation of being used by some subversive elements to cause chaos with the aim of truncating our nascent democracy.”
“For you to do otherwise will amount to undermining national security and law and order,” he said. “Under no circumstances would this be tolerated.”
