Scores injured, vehicular activities paralysed as #EndSARS protests turn violent in Ikorodu

1 Mins read

The protesters were protesting against  Police brutality and violation of human rights for the past two weeks.

Scores of people were injured while commercial and vehicular activities were grounded Sunday, as the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country resulted into violence, in Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The violence started on Saturday morning but degenerated and extended till Sunday as shops, vehicles and business places were vandalised as the protests were hijacked by street urchins popularlly called Area Boys.

According to eye witnesses’ accounts, peaceful protests were simultaneously ongoing at Ikorodu roundabout and Ogolonto axis though commuters and road users were denied access to and fro their destinations.

As a result, some who could not trek to their destinations had to pass the night on the road and this resulted in unhappiness among many.

Similarly, the action ended up distrupting social functions as many would-be guests and celebrants were stranded on the road.

An eye witnesses Mr. Muniru Aderounmu said some supposed guests and celebrants started sharing meals and sourvennirs that would have been used to cater for their guests as the Ogolonto axis was completely impassable as a result of the protests.

Another eye witness Mr. Ebadan Clifford said he paid N2,000 from Ogolonto to Ibeshe on a commercial motorcycle when he could no longer bear the situation.
