The #EndSARS protest keeps gaining momentum by the day as Muslim devotees observe their Jumaat Solat at the protest ground in Lagos and Abuja.
Over the past week, the Nigerian youths have been agitating against the oppression, brutality and killings by the SARS unit of the Nigerian Police Force.
The protest, which has taken different turns as some protesters have lost their lives in the fight, was banned in Abuja yesterday over COVID-19 regulation violation.
In a statement released on Thursday, October 15th, the committee stated that despite the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad by the Inspector-General of Police, the protests had continued, causing inconveniences to law-abiding citizens.
According to the committee, the #EndSARS protest endangers the lives of the demonstrators, as well as other residents of the capital territory, emphasizing that the protesters have failed to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.
The Abuja protestors however regrouped and went on the streets today with more energy to continue the fight.
Surprisingly, some Muslim faithfuls expressing their full support for the campaign collectively held their Jumaat prayers on the protest ground, with non-muslims holding placards behind them.
