EndSARS: Hired Political Thugs unleash mayhem to discredit protests
Nationwide #EndSARS protests against police brutality in Nigeria continued to gain momentum today, 19 October.
Stretching into its third week, the protests have further exposed the rot in the Nigerian system, with all the symptoms of a failed state.
Meanwhile, the political elite have plunged deeper into the mess they created, with the Senate President coming out to beg the youths to end protests after a meeting with the Presidency on Monday to enable the government meet some of the demands presented by the youths. Speaker of the National Assembly, Femi Gbajabiamila was also present at the meeting.
Meanwhile, attempts to muscle protesters into submission intensified on Monday, video evidence from Eyewitnesses have caught on video incidents of violent attacks against protesters, knife-wielding political thugs butchering innocent people on the streets of Abuja, Lagos and other parts of the country while they’re protesting for a better life for all.
Some of the attacks were carried out by men of the Nigerian security forces in Benin, Delta, all in a bid to cover their shame, many believe the government will go to any length to suppress the peoples’ right to freedom of speech and association, the right to demand real change from those elected into power to represent the masses.
Indeed, there was a country, what is left today is a cabal of greedy, self-centered thugs who have hijacked the country’s resources to fund their ambitions and satisfy extravagant lifestyles.
Stay focused people #EndSARS
