Thugs armed with knives, matchets, and guns have started attacking peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Alausa, Ikeja, the Lagos state capital.
Kemi Filani News reports that eye witnesses from the scene shared videos on social media platform, Twitter.
Just yesterday, a similar event occurred in Abuja, as a group of pro-SARS protesters who are believed to be thugs attacked #EndSARS protesters at the Berger junction of the city.

The ongoing protest is against the new unit known as Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team which will fill the gaps arising from the dissolution of the defunct SARS.
Last Sunday, the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu disbanded the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) due to alleged extra-judicial killings, wanton arrests and dispossession of property through physical assault and other intimidation tactics.
