1 Mins read

This is in spite of the several warnings and advice from civil society groups and well meaning Nigerians that the military high command should not deploy soldiers to streets until the #EndSARS protests abated nationwide.

Security operatives, on Monday, took over some venues of mass action planned by youths in Abuja who are protesting against police brutality and extra-judicial killings.

While some soldiers mounted roadblocks and barricades at the popular AYA roundabout, police officers took positions in front of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) headquarters with Armoured Personnel Carrier and water cannons.

The soldiers who took over the AYA roundabout conducted screenings on vehicles heading into the Abuja city-centre through the Nyanya-Mararaba highway.

They also kept the traffic flowing at a reasonable pace.

Recall that the protesters, under the banner of #EndSARS movement, had defied Sunday night rain and camped overnight outside CBN headquarters calling for a reform of the Nigeria Police Force.

They had also vowed to occupy major roads in Abuja and its environs to press home their demands on Monday.

Police Brutality in Karu

Meanwhile, armed policemen on Monday morning brutalised some #EndSARS protesters in Karu, a border town between Abuja and Nasarawa state.

Vanguard gathered that the Security operatives had told the protesters to leave the Mararaba-Nyanya-Karu highway and go home.
