A second wave of protests under the #EndSARS agitation which rocked Nigeria in October broke out in Lagos on Thursday.
1st News reports that the latest protest involved parents who took to the streets to demand justice for their children.
Specifically, the protest broke out at Tejuosho Area of Yaba Local Government Area; as aggrieved parents came out in their numbers. As a matter of fact, the protesters could be seen/heard waving placards and demanding justice.
Equally important, 1st News has obtained a video of the protest; which is reminiscent of the hugely popular #EndSARS campaign which spread across major cities in Nigeria. The video was posted on the microblogging site, Twitter, by a user identified as @johnowen99.
1st News reports that the #EndSARS protest led by youths ended on a violent note.
The protests had been hijacked by hoodlums, leading to many state governments declaring a curfew. However, in Lagos, the curfew had resulted in the alleged shooting of unarmed protesters by the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Meanwhile, the latest protest comes as the Nigeria Police Force, on Wednesday, December 3, commenced proceedings to stop the ongoing probe panels set up by various states to look into allegations of rights abuses, torture, extra-judicial killings and other acts of impunity by members of the force, particularly operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
1st News had reported the panels which have been sitting in several states were inaugurated to investigate alleged brutalities by SARS.
The development came as an aftermath of the nationwide protests by Nigerian youths in October.
In the suit filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday; the Police is seeking an order restraining the Attorneys-General of the 36 states and the FCT; as well as the panels of inquiry they constituted from proceeding with their investigation of the activities of the police and their officials.
